Alcohol Awareness Week 2024

Alcohol Awareness Week takes place from the 1st-7th of July. It is an opportunity to think about drinking. The theme of this year is “Understanding Alcohol Harm”. Alcohol Change UK defines alcohol harm as anytime when alcohol is having a negative impact on our lives, or the lives of those around us. If you are looking for further support regarding this, the Women RISE Drop-in is available on Monday 12pm-13:30pm to speak with a practitioner.
