FAQs

Here are some of our frequently asked questions about how you can get involved.

Q What does Balance want to achieve?
A

 We want to reduce alcohol consumption across the North East. By reducing consumption, which is the root cause of the problems we face which are damaging our health, draining our wealth and threatening our safety, we will start to make this happen.

Q What are the benefits to me?
A

As we’ve seen, alcohol misuse is linked to so many of the problems we face as a society. It damages health, drains the economy, encourages violence, crime and fear of crime and is risking the future of our children. By addressing the problem, we will start to see things change for the better in our individual lives and those of our families and communities.

Q How will you achieve it?
A

As we’ve shown elsewhere on this site, there are several reasons why consumption is too high. We need to address these reasons one at a time, gathering support and demonstrating that support to Government.

Q What difference can I make?
A

Change isn’t going to happen overnight and we can’t do it alone. We need to build an army to demonstrate the strength of feeling supporting the fact that something needs to be done to reduce consumption and the problems it causes. This building process will take time for us to have a meaningful impact but we need to start somewhere. We will do this by gathering support one by one – this is where you come in.
