Proposed merger with Alcohol Research UK

Alcohol Concern is currently in the process of exploring a merger with Alcohol Research UK, a charity registered in England and Wales (No. 1140287). Both charities share a clear mission to reduce the harm caused by alcohol.  Alcohol Research UK has a long record of research excellence and impact, while Alcohol Concern brings a strong media and campaigning profile. Combined, the two charities aim to be in a much stronger position to use robust evidence to campaign for, and support those working to achieve, a reduction in alcohol harms.

If the merger proceeds, we may share your data with Alcohol Research UK. Any data shared with Alcohol Research UK will be used in accordance with the policies of Alcohol Research UK.
