Reasons to support us

Find out more about the work we do and the difference you can make.

Every day in the UK twenty people die as a result of alcohol. Alcohol harm – mental health problems, liver disease, one of seven forms of cancer, economic difficulties, and so much more – can affect any one of us, from any walk of life.

The harm doesn’t end with the individual; each of us who drinks too much is part of a family and a community who feel the effects too, whether through frequent use of emergency services, drink driving, violence or neglect.

We want to build a future in which people drink as a conscious choice, not a default; where the issues which lead to alcohol problems – like poverty, mental health issues, homelessness – are addressed; where those of us who drink too much, and our loved ones, have access to high-quality support whenever we need it, without shame or stigma.

Help us make that a reality.

By donating, fundraising for us or supporting our campaigns, you can help to improve and save lives across the UK.

Your support helps us:

  • Provide online advice and support to thousands of people in search of help each year, whether as a result of their own or others’ drinking.
  • Research alcohol harm, communicate that research, and fund others to do the same. The more we know about alcohol harm, the faster we can end it.
  • Campaign for evidence-based policies around alcohol that will improve lives across the UK. In the past 12 months our campaigns have included clearer alcohol labelling, better funding for alcohol treatment and support, and common sense rules around alcohol marketing.
  • Run campaigns like Dry January and Alcohol Awareness Week, which encourage millions of people to change their drinking habits, and so help create more informed and balanced drinking cultures across the UK.
  • … And much more.

Ways to support us

Any amount of money makes a difference. You can give a one-off donation or give monthly. You can also make a donation in memory of a loved one who lost their life as a result of their drinking.
