Alcohol

The Crime & Drugs partnership (CDP) is committed to bringing partners together to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB), as well as their drivers and causes.

The misuse of alcohol presents a major risk factor for the City, where drunkenness can not only lead to criminal behaviour and public disturbances, but where it also makes responding to those specific issues harder. Long term misuse of alcohol comes with long term serious health risks and can be the cause of profound social problems for citizens and their families.

In 2014, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire joined the one year Home Office and Public Health England Local Alcohol Action Area (LAAA) programme. One of the key pieces of work within this was a cross partnership, innovative communications approach to alcohol which we developed under the tile ‘Ending Alcohol Harm’. You can find out more on our microsite.

The CDP commissions a specialist alcohol treatment provision, funded by the Public Health grant for the City, with Nottingham City Council’s Public Health Department. The range and depth of work we’re undertaking to help end alcohol harm is informed by the Partnership’s Substance Misuse Needs Assessment 2014/15 (soon to be published) and is delivered as part of the City’s strategic approach to substance misuse (see the CDP’s Partnership Plan here), and further to the City’s Health & Wellbeing Strategy and the alcohol strategy for the Nottinghamshire Police & Crime Commissioner.

If you need help or advice with alcohol, no matter the severity, you can call our current treatment provider Last Orders on 0115 9709590 or visit their website.
