Our policy work

We use our policy work to try and influence long-term, strategic change for our beneficiaries. For instance:

We respond to government consultations.

We created the Alcohol and Families Alliance with Alcohol Concern to  bring together organisations from both the alcohol and families/children sectors to consider and formulate new policy.
