In 2014, Glasgow City Alcohol and Drug Partnership (ADP) commissioned a follow up to the 2007 Ripple Effect research. Alcohol & Drug Community Engagers (ACEs) were trained and supported to undertake the community research.
The research found that 78% of respondents agreed that alcohol was a problem in their community. As a result of the findings, 14 recommendations were made. These recommendations were then grouped into 5 themes in line with community feedback: Cultural; Family and Parenting; Young People; Quality of Life; Promotion of Findings.
The research provides a robust evidence base for how communities perceive they are affected by alcohol. This is being used to inform, direct and strategically plan Ripple Effect informed work across Glasgow.
