Cheshire and Merseyside Alcohol Inquiry report


Two years ago, 35 people from across Cheshire and Merseyside gave up four days of their time to help contribute to the Cheshire and Merseyside Alcohol Inquiry. More recently, many of those volunteers gave their views again following the Covid-19 pandemic.

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.

A full article on the report can be found on the Champs website.
