A Change4Life campaign launched last week to raise awareness of the health risks associated with drinking regularly over the guidelines. Four weeks of nationwide TV advertising, beginning today, form the main part of the campaign. The advert shows how drinking can easily ‘sneak up on you’ and encourages people to check their drinking online using the Change4Life Drinks Checker.
- online drinks checker helping people to check units, costs and calorie intake
- smartphone app to help track drinks
- Facebook alcohol quiz
- programme of tips and advice delivered by email and text
- ‘Don’t let drink sneak up on you’ leaflets are available for Change4Life supporters and health professionals around the country, which can be ordered and downloaded online
For anyone working directly with the public, you can find out more about Department of Health public health campaigns, the resources available and how to order, by visiting the Campaign Resource Centre website.
