For Alcohol Awareness Week Forward Leeds have organised an alcohol awareness event on the 23rd of November in Kirkgate Market where they will be joined by One You Leeds, the NHS, St Annes Community Services and Carers Leeds among others.

The aim of the event is to help the public think about their drinking. There are plenty of good reasons to look at your alcohol habits including:

  • Watching your weight
  • Sleeping better
  • Reducing stress
  • Avoiding hangovers
  • Staying healthier for longer

Forward Leeds will be asking people to pledge to make a small change to their drinking and share it on social media using #InspiredChange.

20th November at Leeds Beckett University

20th November at Leeds General Infirmary

21st November Leeds University Student Union
