Ballymun Community Alcohol Strategy

Alcohol: A Local Issue Strategy Aims & Objectives Key Principles & Approach Roundtables & Examples of Actions Support Services & Projects Useful Websites & Relevant Reports

The Ballymun Community Alcohol Strategy was developed through a community consultation process and input from key local agencies. The strategy received valuable input from Dr Ann Hope, Former National Alcohol Policy Advisor to the Department of Health and currently Research Associate, Department of Public Health and Primary Care, Trinity College, who continues to provide external advice and support to the local implementation of the strategy. The strategy entitled ‘A Road To Change: Ballymun Community Alcohol Strategy 2010 – 2016’, aims to use a public health approach to reduce alcohol-related risk to the Ballymun community’s health, safety and well-being.

How the Strategy was developed:

  • In community consultations and reviews from 2005 onwards the Ballymun Local
    Drugs Task Force was repeatedly asked to address alcohol related issues

  • In 2009, the Safer Ballymun Community Safety Forum, in collaboration with
    the Ballymun Local Drugs Task Force initiated the development of a Community
    Alcohol Strategy for Ballymun.

  • A First Roundtable Discussion was organised in April 2009 to ascertain the
    nature and extent of alcohol related harm in Ballymun and initial thinking on
    the type of components that could be considered in such a strategy. 

  • Ballymun Community Alcohol Strategy launched September 2010 

  • Series of roundtables (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014) established strategy,
    reviewed/refined actions and planned others.
