SWAF - Highlands
Project: Alcohol Safety – Aberdeenshire
Absafe operates in the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire areas, and is an award-winning charity educating children and young people on how to make positive decisions around health, safety, risk and hazards, including roads, water and railways.
Absafe’s Pro-Social Behaviour Room was created to incorporate the potential dangers of alcohol consumption for underage people with other common hazards such as fly-tipping, broken glass and fire. The Pro-Social Behaviour Room is used to show young people how alcohol can impair judgement and actions, leading to other risks and dangers. The Scotch Whisky Action Fund’s continued support has allowed the charity to employ a dedicated project facilitator for Absafe’s work around alcohol, allowing the charity to reach more children and young people by facilitating school visits as well as visits to Absafe’s Aberdeen base known as The Safe.
