As an independent alcohol education charity, Drinkaware’s social media pages are designed to provide evidence-based and engaging content to people who interact with us. We encourage anyone who participates in our social media communities to be honest, friendly and open, and it is important to us that our social media channels are a safe place for debate and conversation. We therefore reserve the right, to remove comments or discussion posts which stop this happening.

Members of the community interact with social media communities at their own risk, taking personal responsibility for your comments, posts and any information provided. People who are continually detrimental to others’ enjoyment of our pages risk being permanently banned.
We encourage members of our social media communities to flag/report any content that violates the platform’s terms and conditions.
Our social media channels are moderated all year round during working hours (9am-5pm, Monday to Friday except for bank holidays and the Christmas period.) If you have questions, need support, or need guidance, we will try to respond as quickly as we can.
