A new campaign has launched, led by Champs Public Health Collaborative and funded by Cheshire & Merseyside Health & Care Partnership to promote the Lower My Drinking app, which is now available for use across Cheshire and Merseyside.

During the COVID-19 pandemic harmful drinking has risen significantly, consequently impacting on people, communities, and services.

The campaign which includes videos of people telling their stories about why they reduced their drinking aims to increase the downloads of the Lower My Drinking app and ensure that expert advice is accessible across Cheshire and Merseyside.

The app is free to download and use for anyone who lives or works in Cheshire and Merseyside (access is by postcode). To download the app visit Google Play or App Store.
