We would like to invite you to take part in our consultation program which looks at how the people in Edinburgh view the effects of alcohol consumption. This is a chance for the public to have their say and make a difference to policy and planning around alcohol related issues, in the City. We are conducting the consultation on behalf of the Edinburgh Alcohol & Drug Partnership.
Edinburgh Alcohol and Drug Partnership (EADP) oversees the development and implementation of an alcohol and drug strategy for the city. It is a partnership between the City of Edinburgh Council, NHS Lothian, Police Scotland, the third sector and those with lived experience of addiction and recovery. It is the forum where these organisations work together to make Edinburgh a city that has a healthy attitude towards drinking and where recovery from problem alcohol or drug use is a reality.
The EADP strategy has three high level outcomes:
Children and young people’s health and wellbeing are not damaged by alcohol and drugs.
Individuals and communities affected by alcohol and drugs are stronger and safer.
Fewer people develop problem drug/alcohol use and more people (and their families) are in recovery.
Thank you for taking part in the survey. The more voices we receive, the better informed Edinburgh City will be in planning for the future.
In addition to the 5-10 minute survey, we will be running focus groups and shorter surveys in an attempt to provide yourself and the public with an opportunity to offer more input.
