Final Report (April 2023) David Mackay and Parisa Shirazi
In November 2022, the Scottish Government launched a public consultation on
restricting alcohol advertising and promotion in Scotland. To support children and
young people to share their views and opinions about the proposals included in the
consultation, the Scottish Government commissioned Children in Scotland to deliver
engagement work with children and young people aged between 8 and 17 years old.
The project aimed to support children and young people to take part in the
consultation in ways that were understandable, accessible and engaging. It aimed to
build upon previous alcohol-related youth engagement projects.1 2 Children in Scotland
carried out direct work with a group of children and young people and supported
the wider involvement of children and young people across Scotland through the
production and distribution of accessible consultation materials.
This report brings together key findings from our engagement activity.
