Sarah Newton MP welcomes the launch of the alcohol education charity Drinkaware pilot initiative which is being trialled in a Truro nightclub and is aimed at helping to keep young people safe on their night out. Working in pairs, the club hosts will have a presence in the venue throughout the night, talking to customers at the start of the evening when a queue is forming, supporting customers who are vulnerable due to alcohol and ensuring guests leave safely after the venue has closed. Drinkaware is working with other partners across Devon, Cornwall and Gloucestershire to test and evaluate the intervention in venues in Torquay, Plymouth, Exeter and Cheltenham. Findings will be used to inform an on-going roll-out of the Drinkaware Club Host programme in other parts of the country. This follows a pilot carried out in Nottingham in 2014 as part of Drinkaware’s Drunken Nights Out* campaign, developed to reduce alcohol related harm in the night time economy.
