Alcohol Awareness Week 2017 - ‘Alcohol and Families’ – 13-19 November 2017

For this year’s Alcohol Awareness Week, we will be partnering with Adfam to look at the effects of harmful alcohol use on the family.

This year, the week will take place from 13-19 November 2017.

Start a conversation

We’ll be using this opportunity to start a conversation around problematic alcohol use to help break the cycle of silence and stigma that is all too often experienced by families.

During the week, we’ll be raising awareness about the harm alcohol misuse can cause to families and provide details on where family members can go to find support.

Join the discussion

We’ll be sharing stories during the week on Facebook and Twitter. You can get involved by using the hashtag: #AAW2017 #Supportingfamilies

If you are a family member who has been affected by a relative’s problematic drinking and would like to share your story, please get in touch at:


We’ll have a number of online resources that we’ll be able to share to help you get involved including a useful information pack which will be free to download.

Stay in touch
