Alcohol Awareness Week is a chance for people across the country to get thinking about drinking. Running each November, this year the theme is 'Alcohol and me'.
Taking place from 11-17 November 2019, it’s a week of awareness-raising, campaigning for change, and more.
Locally, support services will mark the week, holding events and sharing messages around the effects of drinking and living healthily.
Wirral's alcohol and substance misuse provider will be holding a celebratory Recovery Event on Friday 15th November at Nightingales Café, Birkenhead. The event will run from 11am - 1pm at the cafe in Argyle Street, CH41 6AG.
Spider Project Wirral will also open their doors to members of the public for their Open Day on Wednesday 14th November, 10am - 2pm. The event invites members and non-members of the abstinence based recovery group to learn more about their centre at Hamilton House, Hamilton St, Birkenhead CH41 5AE.
Throughout the week, Wirral Ways to Recovery will be holding a series of information stalls. These can be accessed by any members of the public who want to learn more about the support options on offer across the borough for themselves or any loved ones they may be concerned out.
