Young People from Hyndburn Youth Council would like to share with you the new short film looking at alcohol misuse to see if you agree with Callum or help Jack know risks of alcohol.

Hyndburn youth councils carried out research alongside the Lancashire Police and Crime commissioners, and found that it showed a real need to focus something new at the 14 – 17 year old. Also, National research shows us that 65% have binge drunk and up to 20% of all 14 – 18 year olds drink on a very regular basis. 

Back in November of last year Hyndburn Youth Council pitched their idea for a new training resource, to the Hyndburn dragons den panel lead by Police Commissioner Clive Grunshaw and they were so impressed they provided £1000 to develop the idea. The money was used to work alongside amazingly talented artist Bodie Camron from Best Joined Up Arts who provided a vast amount of support, guidance and helped the young people to produce the art work.     

"A day in the life of Callum and Jack" was written by young people to paint a realistic scenario of how the over use of alcohol can affect your life. If you have seen or know someone affected by alcohol or just want to support, then spread the word & see if you "Agree with Callum"
