Every hour someone in the UK loses a loved to alcohol. It's the biggest cause of death, ill-health and disability for people aged 15-49. We are doing everything in our power to make this stop.
In April 2017 Alcohol Concern merged with Alcohol Research UK to form the UK's leading independent alcohol charity. Together, we are working to end the harm caused by alcohol.
With the funds donated and raised by our supporters Alcohol Concern has been able to:
Create the one of the UK's most successful behaviour change campaign, Dry January, which in 2017 inspired 1 in every 6 people in the nation to go dry
Persuade the Governments of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to commit to taking action on alcohol harm through minimum unit pricing
Start battles with alcohol companies over their advertising and won, leading to bans on many advertising campaigns
Support local government and public health professionals to develop their knowledge of alcohol issues and implement ways to tackle the issues
Work with large UK businesses to develop alcohol in the workplace policies and train around 1,000 employees to deal with alcohol problems every year
Over the next 18 months we will be releasing the new, merged organisation's strategy. Join us by making a donation or beginning your fundraising today.
