Ballymun Local Drugs and Alcohol Task Force

Community Alcohol Strategy 2017-2020

Call for Submissions

Have your say - tell us what you think

Ballymun Local Drugs and Alcohol Task Force (BLDATF), in partnership with Safer Ballymun Community Safety Forum, has initiated a review of A Road to Change: Ballymun Community Alcohol Strategy 2010-2016, whichduring its lifetime has been supported by local people, political representatives, community leaders, statutory organisations and local alcohol retailers.  Research has shown that the approach adopted in this strategy has been gaining momentum in Ballymun with increased public support, and a heightened awareness of the harmful impact of alcohol on the local community.

As part of the public consultation process for its 2017-2020 strategy, BLDATF seeks proposals or submissions from interested individuals, groups, organisations or agencies who wish to contribute to the new alcohol strategy. The strategy will continue to mobilise local people -  within the context of a public health approach -  to reduce the harm caused by alcohol in Ballymun by reducing overall community consumption levels, modifying local drinking patterns and changing community attitudes on alcohol and alcohol-related harm.

A priority within the framework of this revised strategy will be to outline key objectives and targeted actions, evidence- based practices and engagement of stakeholders in relation to alcohol use and behaviours that will influence the effective delivery of responses to reflect local needs in Ballymun.

We would welcome your views.

Closing date for submissions: 5pm Friday July 8 2016  to Marie Lawless
