AHA launches new campaign on cheap alcohol

4 September 2018:

The Alcohol Health Alliance UK (AHA) is launching a new campaign calling on MPs to end alcohol tax breaks in the upcoming Budget to ease the pressure on the NHS and other public services.

We need your support! Will you send a postcard to your local MP asking them to increase alcohol duty by 2% above inflation, and to introduce minimum unit pricing of alcohol (MUP)?

The postcards carry the photos of six people who have been affected by alcohol in different ways: a mother who lost her 16-year-old daughter to cheap white cider; an alcohol harm police officer with Durham Constabulary; a homeless support worker; two frontline doctors; and a Teesside newsagent. All feel passionately that more needs to be done to tackle the harms caused by cheap alcohol.

Watch the videos below to hear their stories, and send your postcard here. Please share this important campaign with your networks and encourage them to send postcards too.
