Baroness Newlove announces a new £1 million fund to give local communities
the tools they need to tackle binge and underage drinking.

Transcript

Baroness Newlove - Dear all, I really wanted to speak directly to you about
the Government's £1 million alcohol fund. Ten areas in England will be given
money and extra resources to tackle underage binge drinking and alcohol
abuse, to make their neighbourhoods safer and better places.

The rules are on the website, and are simple. You must prove you have the
backing and support of your local authority, police, education and those who
sell alcohol to succeed. But very importantly, local people, as well as young
people, either individuals or charities, should be part of the solutions.

I want to see you come up with new ideas, projects and fresh thinking. I want
to see you working as a team so that the rest of the country can follow your
success. Everyone should have the right to live in a safe, clean environment,
for themselves and their children. It is a basic right, and one that this fund will
help deliver if enough of you have the passion and will.

So good luck.
