The Drink Wise Age Well (DWAW) service was a pioneering multi level, integrated programme that aimed to change behaviour and reduce alcohol related harm in the over 50’s population, throughout the UK. It was very much a community based engagement service based on the principles of co-production.

Barod led on the delivery of the Cwm Taf DWAW service, which was delivered in partnership with some of our well established partners. The final evaluation report of the programme is now available to read and download here.

Since the DWAW programme finished in March 2020, an Over 50’s Alcohol Helpline has since been established, continuing to provide support for people aged 50+ affected by alcohol use, across the UK.
