The 2016 Alcohol Awareness Week will run from 14th to 20th November 2016. This year's theme is "Knowing the Risks".

The aim of Alcohol Awareness Week is to get people thinking about alcohol — how it affects us as individuals, families, communities and society as a whole.

Did you know that alcohol is linked to over 60 medical conditions? Harms from alcohol go much further than the liver, it can cause high blood pressure and is also linked to diabetes, depression and cancer.

Dry January

Following on from our successful first ever Dry January in 2012, we will be encouraging people to sign up for the fifth Dry January campaign which kicks off on 1 January 2017. This year it's estimated that 1 in 6 Brits attempted a dry January — and we're looking to make the next campaign even bigger and better! Alcohol Awareness Week is a great opportunity to start the conversation and encourage people to sign up. More information and resources can be found here
