Alcohol harms were already high before COVID-19: about 80 people die every day across the UK due to alcohol. While some people have reduced their alcohol intake in lockdown, surveys have shown that harmful drinking has increased. The pandemic and lockdown have also been particularly challenging for those in recovery, as well as the children and families of harmful drinkers.

You can help us get the message across by inviting your MP to the event. We will tell them what they can do to help end alcohol harm.
