Alcohol Change (merger of Alcohol Concern & Alcohol Research UK)

Alcohol Change exists to reduce the negative impact alcohol can have on communities, families and individuals. We do this by influencing policy at the highest level, improving practice across the country through training and innovative projects and providing first class information to the public. Alcohol Change believes that a twin approach is needed to tackle what is becoming one of the biggest public health problems in the UK: we need more support for individuals and their families who experience problems with alcohol and better regulation and monitoring of the drinks industry.
