About us

The White Ribbon Association was established over 140 years ago, and was heavily involved in the Temperance Movement of the nineteenth century.

As the years have passed, our delivery methods have adapted to suit the twenty-first century society. We no longer promote abstinence, choosing instead to take a non-judgemental, factual approach. The primary aim of all our work is to equip individuals with knowledge and empower them to make healthy lifestyle choices.

We offer a range of services to schools, colleges and community venues such as health hubs and libraries. Whether our educational, interactive sessions or our informative and eye catching displays, we have a variety of solutions for promoting alcohol, drug, tobacco and gambling awareness in society. For more information on these, see our Education and Community pages.

As a non-profit making organisation, we rely on donations and membership subscriptions. This will enable us to promote the vital work we do, expand our reach throughout the country and continue to raise awareness of the impact of alcohol, tobacco, drugs and gambling.
