2013 GSK IMPACT Awards: Greater Easterhouse Alcohol Awareness Project

The Greater Easterhouse Alcohol Awareness Project (GEAAP) helps people across East Glasgow who are addicted to alcohol, or concerned about their alcohol use, by providing one-to-one counselling, support and information.


Informing and equipping young people to make informed choices about alcohol is also a vital part of GEAAP’s work.

Its ‘Young Booze Buster’ programme provides fun and interactive alcohol awareness sessions in primary schools. It also has a dedicated Young Booze Buster website where cyber counsellor, ‘Becky Boozebuster’, answers the young people’s email questions or conducts live chat via Facebook.

Young Booze Busters is unique in the Greater Glasgow area and has proven to be a popular and effective education tool, so much so that GEAAP has been asked to roll-out the programme across the city.
