Listen out today for Service Manager of Equinox Brighton, Jesse Wilde, speaking to BBC Radio 4 about the 'Sensible on Strength' alcohol campaign. 

The aim of the voluntary scheme is to encourage shop owners in Brighton and Hove to agree not to sell high strength beer, lager or cider (above 6% abv).

Equinox are backing the scheme, working along side Brighton & Hove City Council and Sussex Police, to communicate the benefits of reducing access to high strength beer, lager and cider. 

Jesse Wilde explains: "Drinking weaker alcohol means the street drinkers we work with are more willing to engage with our support, are less likely to put themselves at risk and less likely to impact on their wider community."
