Outreach at events such as the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens, Road to Ultra, Creamfields and Clockenflap centres around harm reduction. Our outreach team actively raises awareness about the immediate risks of binge drinking and offers practical harm reduction strategies to 14 to 24 year olds. This includes our hydration campaign (giving out water to young people under the influence), offering free, fun and alcohol-free activities for young people, as well as a comfortable, safe and alcohol-free environment on site for youth to rest, recover and get emotional support if needed.
Our 3 key harm reduction messages are important reminders for young people:
Look out for your squad
Know when to chill
Water is your H2Bro
Our SOSKELY social media campaign (Facebook and Instagram) engages with young people and underpins these messages in the run up to events. Our Recovery Position Challenge is one component of these and reminds young people about this simple and effective technique that can save lives.
Please contact our Programme Manager if you would like to partner with SOSKELY at your next event.
