Young People's Alcohol and Tobacco Surveys

Previous Lancashire wide surveys provided evidence to:

  • Introduce a voluntary age restriction (16+) on caffeinated energy drinks
  • Fully understand the supply of psychoactive substances (legal highs) in Lancashire which led Trading Standards┬áto seize huge quantities of synthetic drugs and create educational resources to raise awareness of the dangers with young people
  • Implement Community Alcohol Partnerships to improve local areas and safeguard young people
  • Deliver campaigns to influence behaviour change in parents who supply their children with alcohol
  • Offer free support and training for licensed premises in the night time economy to restrict access to alcohol by under 18s
