Alcohol Education Trust offers a vast and comprehensive range of resources for teachers, health professionals and parents clearly organised by topic and year group including films, games and lesson plans.

Crowdfunding Appeal

We are absolutely delighted with the result of our Crowdfunding appeal! We exceeded our original target of £20,000 and raised £22,000 through 78 wonderful supporters in just 21 days. This included £10,000 in match funding from Dorset County Council Youth Opportunity Fund. A huge thank you to everyone who supported us - we really appreciate your help!

The money raised will support the development of our Pavilion in the Park, PiP’s - a new AET office, youth space and café. Located on the Great Field in Poundbury, Dorset, the area will have Parkour for teenagers as well as an all-weather sports pitch, an outside gym and one mile walking/running track. Work is due to start on the building in Autumn this year and we are hoping it will be ready by Spring 2020!
