Description:

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has published 'The influence of family and friends on young people's drinking'. This report examines family and friendship influences on young people's drinking habits, in order to shed light on how the negative aspects of young people's drinking culture in the UK might be changed. Drawing on five research projects, it concludes that, prevention and harm reduction approaches need to take into account how family circumstances vary, public health messages need to connect more with the realities of parents' attitudes and practices, interventions should consider group behaviour, not just individuals' behaviour and the potential for using price as a harm reduction measure and the need for more appealing spaces for young people to socialise require further consideration.
