Reducing harm caused by alcohol


Alcohol Focus Scotland offers a range of training courses to help people understand, manage and prevent the harm caused by alcohol.

We can provide training for:

  • People working in the licensed trade and in the regulation of licensing
  • Early years workers, teachers and others working with children and young people affected by a family member's drinking
  • Employers who want to raise awareness of and manage alcohol/drug issues in the workplace
  • People in a professional or personal role caring for someone affected by alcohol
  • Volunteers and staff on telephone helplines to provide alcohol information and support

Our interactive style of training helps people develop the practical skills and confidence to deal with a range of alcohol-related issues.

All of our training (other than licensing courses which follow national standards) can be customised to focus on particular aspects or to suit particular client groups.
