Supporting our Community and Understanding the Connection: Alcohol and Domestic Abuse

With the arrival of warmer weather and the excitement of summer sporting events such as the UEFA European Championship (Euros), we recognise the increased risk of alcohol-related abuse and are dedicated to providing support and legal guidance to those affected.

Understanding the Connection: Alcohol and Domestic Abuse

Alcohol consumption often rises during the summer months, driven by outdoor gatherings, vacations, and major sporting events. Unfortunately, this increase in consumption can lead to a surge in domestic abuse incidents. Studies have shown a strong correlation between excessive drinking and the prevalence of domestic violence, with alcohol often exacerbating existing tensions and triggering aggressive behaviour.

The Impact of Summer Celebrations

The Euros and other summer festivities are occasions for celebration and community spirit. However, they also bring a significant spike in alcohol consumption, which has been known to heighten the risk of domestic abuse. Obviously, alcohol alone is not a cause of Domestic Abuse, however they both do have some correlation. As we cheer for our national team and enjoy the season’s warmth, it is crucial to stay vigilant and aware of the potential dangers alcohol poses in our homes and communities.

Potential behavioural patterns to watch out for include:

· Raised Voices

· Mood Swings

· Foul Language

· Aggressive Body Language

  • Bad Tempered
