The Ripple Effect



Like the ripple effect created by a pebble in a pond, the ‘ripple’ effect of alcohol goes far beyond the individual and their immediate family.

As a follow up to the 2007 research, The Ripple Effect was re-commissioned by Glasgow City Alcohol and Drug Partnership (GCADP) in 2014. The aim of the research was to provide a baseline of the perceived impact alcohol has on 12 communities across Glasgow City.

The research highlighted a range of negative issues and resulted in 14 recommendations based upon actions suggested to improve alcohol related problems in the community.

Once recruited, the ACEs plan to embark on action based community engagement projects in partnership with the local communities and services to tackle the issues highlighted.
