First measures: a guide to alcohol misuse prevention work with children

This publication is for those working with primary school age children who need to know the best ways to educate and inform them on issues around alcohol misuse. It offers guidance by: summarising what is effective practice in alcohol misuse prevention; summarising key ‘things to think about’ when developing a project; and providing case study examples and comments from children themselves.

The case studies are drawn from the Mentor UK Alcohol Misuse Prevention Awards scheme which highlights projects and activities that they feel influence children’s attitudes, their skills and their behaviour so that when they are older they can avoid the damage that the misuse of alcohol can cause.
