Drug and Alcohol Strategy Consultation

Closed 8 Jan 2021

Opened 27 Nov 2020


Substance misuse remains an important issue for our city. The impacts of drug and alcohol use are seen across Bristol; there are implications to the health of our population, and the safety within our communities.

Bristol’s existing alcohol strategy expires in 2020. This presents an opportunity to develop a new, city-wide strategy which looks to address issues relating to all substances (not just alcohol, but all drugs) within one document. 

Bristol City Council has worked with partners across the city to draft a proposed new Drug and Alcohol Strategy, on behalf of the Keeping Communities Safe Group (of the Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership).

The draft strategy sets out our vision for Bristol’s response to issues related to alcohol and other drugs, and the priority areas we would need to focus on. The strategy is not meant to be a detailed plan of all the actions that will be taken, or interventions that could be introduced. Rather, the strategy sets out the over-arching framework to guide future action planning.

This draft strategy is now subject to public consultation. You can give us your views by following the link below and completing the survey before Friday 8 January 2021.

If you require this survey in an alternative format, you can request one by emailing ph.commissioning@bristol.gov.uk or calling 0117 922 2848.
