Ballymun Community Alcohol Strategy: Invitation to Tender


Ballymun Community Alcohol Strategy

Research Tender

To undertake a representative study on alcohol attitudes and behaviour in Ballymun to compare data with 2011, 2015, 2019 survey results.  

Context and Background 

In June 2010, the first Ballymun Community Alcohol Strategy was launched which sought to reduce the amount of harm caused by alcohol use in the Ballymun area by lowering local consumption levels and altering harmful drinking behaviour. The Strategy was initiated and developed by the Ballymun Local Drugs and Alcohol Task Force and the Safer Ballymun Community Safety Forum[1]. The implementation of this Strategy took place from 2010-2016 with a range of actions delivered in collaboration with local agencies/partners and community members, also drawing on a wide body of Irish and international learning on public health and alcohol in its design, overall approach and specific actions.

A new strategy for alcohol was developed for the period 2017-2020 with funding received through Dormant Accounts (2016) building on the actions from 2010-2016 strategy and new areas of work also identified and was extended to cover the years 2021 and 2022 due to Covid. This second strategy (similar to the strategy 2010-2016) sought to bring about community level systemic change by mobilising the community to address the impact of alcohol-related harm relating to the dissemination and implementation of actions relating to the key themes and goals below.

Please see tender brief document attached below.
