Alcohol Change UK’s 2021 online conference

On 22 and 23 September, we’ll be bringing you a conference that puts alcohol in context: an opportunity to reflect on the reasons people drink, and the many routes to harm reduction and recovery for a diverse population. Across the two days of Rebuild and Recover, we’ll be seeking to learn the lessons of the lockdown and understand how best to respond to the challenges of the post-pandemic world. Speakers include:

  • Dr Lee Hogan and members of Moving On In My Recovery, on providing peer support in the pandemic
  • Justina Murray of Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol and Drugs (SFAD), on supporting the families of drinkers through lockdown and beyond
  • Dr Emmert Roberts, on what can we learn about alcohol harm reduction from the hotel-based emergency housing programme
  • Author Millie Gooch, on changing how we think about not drinking
  • Community development specialist Cormac Russell, on remaking connections post-Covid-19
