Tackling Scotland's Alcohol Problem

Refugees' experiences of harmful alcohol use - Report Launch

Refugees' experiences of harmful alcohol use - Report Launch

We warmly invite you to join us online on Tuesday 10 November 2020 from 14:00-16:00 GMT for the launch of a new University of Edinburgh and SHAAP report: Exploring the factors that influence harmful alcohol use through the refugee journey: a qualitative study.

This study, conducted by Dr Fiona Cuthill and Dr Steph Grohmann of the University of Edinburgh and funded by SHAAP, assessed the experiences of, and perspectives regarding, harmful alcohol use among people seeking asylum and refugees in Scotland and England. It involved interviews with 20 individuals with current experience of seeking asylum in the UK, and 6 staff members working in third sector organisations, and makes strong recommendations for policy and practice.

The report launch will include a presentation of the findings and recommendations for policy by the researchers, and will leave time for attendees to engage in an open Q&A session and discussion.
