The aim of this research was to aid understanding of the meaning of alcohol in the lives of 12- to 17-year-old young people. Focus groups and individual interviews were conducted in respect of the 'why' of drinking, its antecedents, expectations and potential consequences. Principal data collection was with school pupils in London and South Wales, with particular attention given to 16- to 17-year-old young women. However, given the broad agenda setting function of the research, work was also undertaken with young people outside of the school environment, i.e. from youth groups, young offender groups, and those in residential care. The total number of young people participating was 180.
