Liverpool’s Drink Less Enjoy More Intervention Progress Monitoring Report
UK nightlife environments are characterised by high levels of drunkenness and alcohol related health and social harms (Bellis & Hughes, 2011). Such high levels of intoxication in city centres across the UK belie the fact that the sale of alcohol to, or purchase of alcohol for intoxicated individuals has been illegal for over 400 years (CPS, 2005).
To address the sale of alcohol to drunks in Liverpool City Centre, local partners developed and piloted the multicomponent Say No to Drunks (SNTD) intervention in 2014, and later refined and broadened it as a second (longer-term) phase in 2015 – rebranding the intervention Drink Less Enjoy More (DLEM). The intervention aimed to: increase awareness of the legislation preventing sales of alcohol to, and purchasing of alcohol for drunks; support bar staff compliance with the law; provide a strong deterrence to selling alcohol to drunks; and promote responsible drinking amongst nightlife users. The intervention has now been running for over two years and as part of an ongoing monitoring and development process of DLEM, the Public Health Institute (PHI), Liverpool John Moores University was commissioned to implement a research study to monitor progress of key elements of the intervention.
