You Can Help Alcohol Research UK

We want to be able to fully understand the issues around alcohol for individuals, families and communities: why some people are more vulnerable than others, the contributing factors, the effective interventions, the barriers and facilitators and the human implications.

However, we can’t do this alone and need your support if we are going to make a difference.

Whether you are an individual who has been affected by the consequences of excessive drinking, a company that is interested in improving the health of the nation, an agency that needs to undertake some research, or another charity that is already working in the field, there are lots of ways in which we can work together to tackle an issue which can have long term and devastating effects on individuals and their families.


Alcohol Research UK welcomes donations of any size. They all help us to provide the reliable, research-based evidence that can really make a difference in tackling the problem of alcohol misuse now and in the future.

A One-off Donation

For secure Credit/Debit Card donations, please go to our Alcohol Concern website donation page here.

Alternatively, you can send a donation by post. Simply send a cheque made payable to “Alcohol Research UK” to the following address:

Alcohol Research UK
27 Swinton Street

If donating by post and you are a UK taxpayer, please make sure you complete a Gift Aid declaration, so that we can claim the tax back and make your donation go even further.

Named Funds

If you are able to make a larger donation of £10,000 or more (as a one-off donation or series of payments), you can create a “named” fund. This means that we will use your donation to set up a charitable fund within Alcohol Research UK but in your own name, that of a loved one or perhaps your company. We can discuss with you the area that you would like your funding to go into whether that is for tackling alcohol dependency, understanding the role of alcohol in domestic abuse or the link between alcohol and crime– we will ensure that your funding is used effectively and that it is put to research that will make a difference. A donation of £20,000 or more can be used to create a named endowment fund, meaning that the donation will go on working in your chosen name in perpetuity.

Other Ways to Help Alcohol Research UK


Taking part in or running your own event?

If you are running a marathon, cycling to Paris, giving up alcohol for a month, holding an office quiz or doing a parachute jump please think about raising money for Alcohol Research UK. You can either send us a cheque following the event or it’s easy to set up a Justgiving page and the money comes directly to us – go to: follow all the links about ‘to get started’ and choose Alcohol Research UK as your charity.

We would be delighted to work with your company in a variety of different ways.  Maybe you would be interested in making a general donation, putting your company name to a specific piece of research or you might even like us to help you find out the impact that alcohol is having on your own organisation.

Our annual conference has become well known as the best conference to hear the UK’s leading experts’ debate the latest issues and trends in alcohol research and how they are impacting on alcohol harms, policy and strategy. Top practitioners, researchers and policy makers attend as well as many students interested in this field. There are many ways in which you could get involved from becoming the headline sponsor of the conference through to having an exhibition stand.

Alcohol harm is a long-term problem and we want to ensure that we are able to support research in the future. Leaving a legacy to Alcohol Research UK is a lasting and positive way to ensure that we will be able to continue this vital work. If you need any help in writing your will or you have already pledged to leave a legacy to Alcohol Research UK please do contact us.

If you are able to leave a larger legacy of over £10k we can discuss with you whether you would like to set up a Named Fund.
