Alcohol harm reduction strategy
Purpose The second Poole Partnership Alcohol Harm Reduction Strategy builds on progress made in 2007-10 to reduce the amount of harm that alcohol causes to individuals, families and communities in the Borough. The Strategy covers the period from 2010-2013, and has been developed by members of Poole Partnership to set clear objectives, directions and actions describing how harms relating to alcohol misuse within Poole will be addressed through joint working across agencies. These are based on key local issues and gaps in service provision identified by both a national and local evidence base, and include: supporting higher-risk drinkers, minimising the effects of alcohol on older and younger people, understanding links between alcohol and domestic abuse, developing a clear local alcohol message and supporting Poole's night-time economy.
