Alcohol Education Trust - Inspiring Scotland

Youth Action Fund

Alcohol Education Trust

The Alcohol Education Trust (AET) is a national charity that supports schools, parents, carers, health educators and professionals supporting young adults to ensure that young people of all abilities are equipped with the resilience and life skills to make safer choices around alcohol and other substances.

The Trust’s work in Scotland is an integral part of The Youth Action Fund, by training the staff in partner charities who support young adults at risk of unemployment or who lack training, who are also more vulnerable to alcohol and substance misuse. Its work in Scotland draws on the “train the trainer” model whereby the charity trains staff at partner organisations over a period of 1-2 years. It builds on the success of its 16+ Alcohol and other substances Workshops and Toolkit for vulnerable young adults which is delivered nationwide.
