The AET has to raise £200,000 annually to support the production of its free award-winning school resources, to employ its regionally based specialist trainers who work with parents, teachers and community leaders and to develop and maintain the digital and game-based online platforms for young people, parents and professionals.


You can support your local school with  our award-winning Talk About Alcohol resource for just £90, or fund training of youth leaders at your sports or youth club for £300, making a huge difference at community level in reducing children’s risk taking. If you cycle, run, hold coffee mornings or book sales, please think of us as a worthy cause. To learn more or for marketing resources, please email


We welcome responsible corporate partners who wish to improve the health and wellbeing of children locally or across Britain. The AET programmes are used in over 2,000 schools and organisations and can demonstrate evidence of impact, behaviour change, fidelity, sustainability and value for money. Please invite us to make a presentation by emailing


The AET resources are used in schools, youth and sports clubs across the UK, reaching 500,000 children, 110,000 parents and 12,000 teachers and health editors each year. The website enjoyed 194,000 unique visitors in 2018.

Organisations such as youth and sports clubs use our resources too. The right sponsor could help ensure that our
resources remain available to our key users free of charge and, if appropriate, raise awareness of their goods or services to a broad audience. Please do contact us via


As a small charity of just ten part time staff with such a broad remit we welcome and need ambassadors and mentors to guide and support our work, from joining our group of 40 PSHE, school nurse, medical and professional advisors, to becoming a trustee. Please do contact us via

The resource allowed me to feel confident when delivering these lessons as it is backed up with evidence and statistics. I found my students liked having the facts. It also used language that my students understood and allowed me to feel sure that I was giving the correct information.

The links to the website mean that the resource is ‘live’ and can be kept current. This is essential for any PSHE resource. I would recommend this resource to other teachers.

I used the AET Teacher Workbook for lesson plans and materials for the LEAF Alcohol Programme last year. I used this resource with all of Year 8 over the period of four lessons and with Year 9 over two lessons.

I found the resource easy to use. The layout is clear and there is an option to use the worksheets as they stand or to adapt them to meet the needs of your class. The suggested activities also have scope to fit in with the needs of your class and can easily be changed as questions and issues arise. I liked the flexibility of this.
