Alcohol Awareness Week 2017: Alcohol and families
The focus of Alcohol Awareness Week from 13 to 19 November 2017 will be on alcohol and families. In partnership with Adfam, we’re using this opportunity to start a conversation around harmful drinking, to help break the cycle of silence and stigma that is all too often experienced by families.
To support that, we’re publishing four new factsheets in English and Welsh:
- For parents and carers, information on alcohol and parenting, looking at what’s the best advice for parents when it comes to alcohol and children
- For children and young people, advice on what to do if they think a parent is drinking too much
- Plus advice for older family members in the same situation
- And a more general factsheet on understanding the new drinking guidelines that came out in 2016.
