Don’t Buy It, Don’t Supply It

Young people in Galashiels have raised concerns about adults buying alcohol for children and young people. Teenage drinking can have an immediate and long term impact on health and the earlier teenagers start drinking regularly, the greater the risk of problem drinking in adulthood.

Direct purchase of alcohol by a young person is rare with the majority of alcohol sourced from home, a friend or relative.

The Scottish Borders Safer Communities Team, which will involve us, Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, has launched the Don’t Buy It, Don’t Supply It campaign with support from the Alcohol & Drugs Partnership.
