Balance is funded by the North East’s 12 local authorities.
The organisation also brings together a number of other partners and stakeholders including:
- Local authorities
- Health services
- Police forces
- Emergency services
- Voluntary agencies
- Alcohol support groups
- Treatment services
- Prison and probation services
Alcohol misuse costs the region £1.29billion each year – that’s £437 for every man, woman and child in the North East. One of Balance’s aims is to reduce this – and reduce it significantly.
The work we do has already started to make a real difference in the region and with the support of partners and public in the North East we aim to make an even bigger impact.
