Alcohol survey in Neilston

EAST Renfrewshire council are urging Neilston residents to take part in a survey on alcohol use.

In the first survey of its kind, the survey hopes to investigate, in a constructive and informative way, how alcohol affects the community.

The findings will go on to influence local policies ranging from alcohol licensing to the way alcohol support services are provided.

Councillor Alan Lafferty, convener for social work and health, said: “This project puts Neilston community at its heart, so make sure you fill in the online survey.

“Your views and opinions will help to inform how alcohol-related harm is reduced locally.

“The partners involved will use the findings to target their work so the more people who contribute will mean a greater impact and outcome”.

Alcohol Focus Scotland is leading the project, funded by the Robertson Trust, along with East Renfrewshire council and CHCP, Neilston Development Trust and the Alcohol Drug Partnership.
