Newham Council is encouraging residents to give their health a boost.
In partnership with HAGA-Action on Alcohol, the council is:
- rasining awareness of how alcohol affects health in the borough
- helping residents think about their drinking
- helping residents access help if they need it
Alcohol can affect health in a number of ways, including:
- cause of accidents and injuries
- liver disease
- memory loss
- sexual difficulties
- contribute to weight gain
If you are concerned about the levels of alcohol you are consuming please use the Don’t Bottle It Up website to take an alcohol test.
