The Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP) is a partnership of the Medical Royal Colleges in Scotland and the Faculty of Public Health.
SHAAP provides consistent, expert advice and advocating for effective solutions to reduce alcohol-related harms.
Their ‘Calling Time’ campaign highlights the importance of associating sport with health and team spirit, instead of an alcohol marketing vehicle.
At Holyrood I met with Elinor Jayne, SHAAP Director to discuss their campaigning for a ban on alcohol sponsorship of sport.
The Scottish Women’s Football Association is leading the way by refusing to accept alcohol sponsorship.
