Led by Champs Public Health Collaborative on behalf of the nine local authorities in Cheshire and Merseyside, the sub-region’s Alcohol Inquiry brought local citizens together to engage in an open and honest debate on having a healthier relationship with alcohol. Participants shared their views and personal experiences deliberating the question ‘what can we all do to make it easier for people to have a healthier relationship with alcohol?’.
The views and recommendations of those 35 people have been captured in their own words and compiled into a report titled ‘The Cheshire and Merseyside Alcohol Inquiry’ (attached). The remaining content has been written by Peter Bryant of Shared Future, a Community Interest Company based in the North West of England.
The Collaborative will use the recommendations from the Cheshire and Merseyside Alcohol Inquiry to inform the sub-region’s Reduction of Harm Through Alcohol programme and any co-ordinated advocacy to national government, with colleagues and stakeholders from around the country.
