Bottletop in partnership with West Mercia Police, H.A.N.D. and Herefordshire Council has been running workshops for people who have been on long term H.A.N.D. bans.

You can listen to some audio interviews with some of the participants using the player above.

By helping people who are on a H.A.N.D. ban learn about safe alcohol use they get the chance to return to drinking in Herefordshire Pubs and Clubs.

H.A.N.D. Pubwatch Online is an initiative that allows licensed premises instant access to easily communicate and circulate information of individuals that are banned by H.A.N.D. Pubwatch scheme from entering licensed premises across the area with a key aim of achieving a safe and secure social environment for licensed premises customers and staff.
