  • Mission statement

    The vision of the Alcohol Education Trust is for young people to enter adulthood with a healthy relationship with alcohol by equipping them with the knowledge and skills to make responsible and informed choices. Our goal is to raise the age of onset for youth drinking, as early regular use is associated with lower academic attainment and other risk taking. Furthermore, we aim to reduce drinking to drunkenness and hence short term harms, to reduce alcohol related illnesses and harm in adulthood.
    The mission of the Alcohol Education Trust is to support the education system to deliver high quality alcohol education to 11 – 18 year olds, with tailored approaches for different age groups and learning needs, through the development of resources and training as well research and advocacy

    We aim to increase knowledge, awareness and understanding of alcohol, the law and its effects on the body and the social and physical risks.

    We promote dialogue about alcohol between teenagers and their parents and teachers.

    We build young people’s resilience and life skills, helping them to understand personal responsibility, planning ahead and facilitating informed choices

    We raise the age of onset of drinking (first whole drink)

    We ensure teachers understand how risk taking affects behaviour and academic attainment

    We ensure parents understand the law, the importance of setting boundaries, being good role models, knowing where their children are and who they are with.
