What we do

Our main work is based around helping to bridge the gap between the scientific evidence on alcohol and the wider public.  We want to make all of this evidence accessible to anyone with an interest in alcohol – politicians, reporters, health professionals, students, youth workers and others – and to advocate for effective responses that will reduce the toll of alcohol in society.

This takes place through four major parts of our work:

  • We write occasional major reports and research papers
  • We exchange information and advocate for evidence-based alcohol policy as active members of alliances and forums for public interest groups
  • We produce up-to-date information and factsheets on key aspects of alcohol policy in the UK that are freely available on our website, and monthly magazine the Alcohol Alert
  • We answer queries from the media and general public and make media appearances when requested
