The National Community Action on Alcohol Pilot Project began in January 2015. The project was delivered by the Alcohol Forum in partnership with the Drug Programmes and Policy Unit, Department of Health and the Health and Wellbeing Division of the HSE. The project sought to reduce alcohol related harm, by supporting Drug and Alcohol Task Forces to adopt a ‘community mobilization’ approach.

Five projects were selected to take part in the pilot process. Following initial meetings with project leaders, groups were asked to establish sub committees in each area to lead the process. Initial training was held with two of these committees. Each subcommittee then sent representatives to attend five training days in Dublin. Following training, each subcommittee was facilitated (onsite) to support the development of their action plans on alcohol. Ongoing support was also available to sub committees in the form of phone calls and emails with the project trainer, 1-1 meetings, further training onsite for groups and support with completing action plans.
