Our Mission

Our vision is for young people to enter adulthood having a healthy relationship with alcohol. We engage pupils before they begin drinking, help them build resilience skills, know how to avoid risky situations and learn how to look after themselves and each other. The average age of a first whole drink in the UK is age 13 - far too young, and usually at home.

Our Dryvember Christmas PREtox challenge is launched (Click to read more)

Knowing that December is full of boozy Christmas parties, late nights and celebrations, why not give your body a good ‘pretox’ and take a break from the booze this November to prepare yourself for the festive season?!

By taking on the challenge you’re sure to look your best and slip into that cocktail dress a little easier, or tighten a notch on your belt while saving a few quid. You’ll then be on top form for the festive season – The challenge will help you save up for it too.

You can try a week during Alcohol Awareness Week (17th - 23rd November) a half marathon of 13 days or the full monty of 26 days! We’ve allowed you a couple of days to fall off the wagon if it helps so you don’t miss out on special occasions. The money you donate will help The Alcohol Education Trust make a real difference in schools across Britain – we train teachers, reach out to parents and support pupils aged 11- 18 with the Talk About Alcohol programme.
