Calling Time on Binge Drinking and Alcohol-Fuelled Violence: The Next Steps

Calling Time on Binge Drinking and Alcohol-Fuelled Violence: The Next Steps
Central London
Wednesday 25th March 2015

Please, be advised that the early registration deadline for the above symposium is now fast approaching. This special rate represents a reduction of 20% off the standard delegate rates and is valid until Thursday 15th January 2015.

Following the launch of its Alcohol Strategy in 2012, the Home Office published the 'Next steps following the consultation on delivering the Government’s alcohol strategy' in July 2013, focusing on three key areas:

  • Targeted national action
  • Joining up at the local level
  • Promoting growth and supporting responsible businesses

To underpin its policy objectives, another significant change has seen the transfer of responsibility of public health from the NHS to local authorities in April 2013, with local authorities working with a wide range of partners (including drug and alcohol action teams) and taking command of commissioning and coordinating services on the ground.

This special symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for local councils, licensing authorities, police service, health sector, industry and other key stakeholders to discuss the impact of the Government’s measures on alcohol. The symposium will explore how to clamp down on the binge drinking culture which pervades our society and analyse the new public health role of local authorities in tackling alcohol misuse.

We are pleased to advise you that we offer a 20% early registration discount off the standard delegate rates for all bookings received by 15th January 2015.

In the meantime, to ensure your organisation is represented, please book online or complete and return the attached registration form at your earliest convenience in order to secure your delegate place(s).

Kind regards,
