We carry out research designed to uncover students’ experiences related to alcohol and drugs during their time in education. The findings provide our programme participants and those working across the sector with valuable insights, supporting the development of evidence-based interventions and the achievement of meaningful change.
Drug and Alcohol Impact is an SOS-UK project. SOS-UK is a student-led education charity focusing on sustainability - we know environmental sustainability cannot be achieved in isolation, so our work spans across issues of justice and wellbeing as well.
Alcohol Impact and Drug & Alcohol Impact are SOS-UK programmes that run in partnership with universities and students’ unions and are supported by key sector agencies including Universities UK and AMOSSHE.
