Wirral works together to tackle alcohol related harm

A new phase of a programme to tackle alcohol related crime and health harms has been launched last week.

This second phase of the Local Alcohol Action Areas (LAAA) programme sees 33 new regions – including Wirral - coming on board. The programme initially launched in February 2014 covering 20 areas.

The plan will see local agencies including licensing authorities, health bodies, and police coming together with businesses to address problems caused by alcohol in their local area.

The partnership will work with the Home Office and Public Health England to find innovative ways to share, and make better use of, data and information so that individuals with alcohol problems can be supported more effectively, and the impact of alcohol on local communities and services reduced. 

Cllr Janette Williamson, Wirral's Cabinet Member for Public Health said:- "Wirral has more than 9,000 alcohol related hospital admissions each year; the equivalent of a hospital ward every day. The wider impact of alcohol on our families and communities is immense. There is excellent work going on in Wirral to reduce the harms caused by alcohol. Becoming a Local Alcohol Action Area will enable us to bring together all of the many strands under one banner and collaborate on finding new ways of tackling these problems using expert guidance."
