The Government has significant funding, across several Government Departments, with specific projects in support of the National Alcohol Strategy. For example, the Home Office has funded Alcohol Misuse Enforcement Campaigns and the Tackling Violent Crime Programme, the Department of Health has funded an audit of treatment services and a Programme of Improvements will be supported from April. Both Departments are jointly funding the promotion of sensible drinking.

The Alcohol Harm Reduction Strategy for England encourages the police, local authorities, primary care trusts and other groups to better utilise existing resources and powers and to encourage agencies to work together more effectively to combat alcohol harms.
