Literature review of evidence on drinking patterns among minority ethnic groups, including the Irish population, in the UK over the last 15 years and on service provision for this group.

The Government's alcohol strategy, 'Safe. Sensible. Social.', recommends assessing and developing provision for black and minority ethnic groups. This review explores differences in drinking patterns by ethnicity and the cultural and social contexts around alcohol use.

The review:
o describes drinking levels as reported in national surveys and local research;
o considers why drinking rates among ethnic groups may change over time;
o examines help-seeking, support and service provision for minority ethnic groups;
o examines how services are equipped to respond to the needs of minority ethnic groups.
