A7(a). Community Actions to Tackle Alcohol Harms
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 10 June, 2015
Please describe how you have supported local community activity to tackle alcohol's social and health harms, over the last year (2000 characters limit):
Tesco is currently participating in 62 Community Alcohol Partnerships around the country, this is double the amount we were involved in last year. All of our Community Champions are briefed on Community Alcohol Partnerships so they can actively engage with schemes in their local areas and seek out opportunities to cooperate where schemes are not in place. Currently 139 Tesco stores belong to Business Improvement Districts across the UK; one of the most common objectives of BIDs is to tackle antisocial behaviour caused by excessive alcohol consumption.
We have offered our support to Local Alcohol Action Areas and responded positively to requests for in kind support. We have also helped facilitate the transition of some Local Alcohol Action Areas into Community Alcohol Partnerships. We are also taking the success of Community Alcohol Partnerships in tackling under- age drinking and are looking at how they might be able to help tackle other issues, such as street drinking.
