A range of literature has been produced in support of the Government's current Know Your Limits alcohol awareness campaign for young people under 25. This includes leaflets and posters, which are available for order from the department publications orderline, by phone, fax or via the dedicated campaign website at www.knowyourlimits.gov.uk. The literature has been promoted widely across National Health Service health promotion networks and other dedicated stakeholder networks; demand has been very high so far.

The need for material relating to a wider population will be considered as part of work on the review of the cross-government alcohol strategy.
