Youth Alcohol Action Plan


Thumbnail of Youth Alcohol Action PlanThis product is created by DCSF

There is growing public concern about how much alcohol young people drink in their teenage years. The evidence set out in this Action Plan, which was promised in the Children's Plan, shows the extent of the problem.

Young people who drink too much put their own health at risk, and are more likely to get involved in antisocial behaviour and contribute to crime. To tackle these problems, the Government needs to work closely with parents, schools, health services and the police.

This Action Plan sets out how the Government will address these problems, through a strong partnership with parents, industry, criminal justice and law enforcement agencies and communities.
