A Youth voice in the alcohol licensing process?

Paul McMahon, CAYAD

In the alcohol licensing process there are a lot of words spoken about young people and a lot of assumptions made about what they would like and what they do, but very little involvement of young people or the people who work with them. The process would be greatly improved by greater participation of young people and the people who work with them. People can expect: 1. An overview of the licensing process and Local Alcohol Policy process 2. To gain an understanding of how youth and youth sector voices could make a difference 3. To gain an understanding of a public health approach to reducing alcohol-related harm 4. Interactive activities.
