Drinkaware’s public health remit includes tackling underage drinking. We do this by empowering teachers and parents to support their students and children to have a better awareness and understanding of the facts regarding alcohol and its related harms.
Primary prevention, stopping early alcohol use before it starts, requires significant changes in attitudes, knowledge and behaviour. All of these can be supported by evidence-informed and effective alcohol education.
There is no place for alcohol in childhood. Through the collective efforts of Irish society, from educators and parents to charities and government, we firmly believe we can make a lasting difference to the next generation’s relationship with alcohol.
