Children in Scotland Alcohol Advertising Consultation

Children in Scotland has an exciting new project opportunity for children and young people to be involved in.   

The Scottish Government is asking for everyone’s views on how alcohol is advertised in Scotland. They want to make changes to how this currently works so they can improve people’s health and wellbeing. The Scottish Government is particularly keen to hear about what children and young people think so they have asked us to help gather their views and ideas.  

If you are:  

  • Aged between 8 – 18  
  • Passionate about the views of children and young people being included in areas that impact on them  
  • Interested in being part of an interesting project and working together with other young people  

…then we would love to hear from you!

The project will start in January 2023. We will have 5 online meetings between 12 January and 2 March. Each of these meetings will take place on Thursday evenings between 4.30-6.30pm.     

If you have any questions or would like to be involved in the project, then please contact Parisa on pshirazi@childreninscotland.org.uk.  

We do not expect anyone applying to know a great deal about this issue, David and Parisa (our friendly staff who will be running the sessions) will make sure that everyone has the information they need to be part of the discussions.
