Submitted: 16 June, 2014
Please describe how you have supported local community activity to tackle alcohol's social and health harms, over the last year.
There has been a countywide reduction in Alcohol related violent crime. Street pastors schemes are now in place in most of the locations with significant night time economy venues across the county.
The Health and wellbeing team are now in receipt of A&E data regarding those who have been admitted with an alcohol related injury. Working in conjunction with other partners we will establish the most appropriate method to share this data and utilise it following analysis.
The Countywide alcohol plan includes a section entitled creating a community environment where sensible drinking is the norm. This includes actions around supporting national campaigns and training and awareness raising.
Drug and alcohol treatment services are in the process of being re-commissioned across the county, with a focus being upon early access to appropriate services and treatment, and preventative services. The contract will be for an integrated drug and alcohol service for adults and young people.
A comprehensive piece of analysis was undertaken to identify any causal links between Domestic Abuse and alcohol misuse, this has been presented to the Worcestershire Forum Against Domestic Abuse and will be used to inform future projects and actions.
