Details

CLeaR is an evidence-based system improvement model to help prevent and reduce alcohol-related harm at a local level.

The self-assessment tool follows the CLeaR model, and helps partnership areas to assess local arrangements and delivery plans for reducing alcohol-related harm. The tool also helps to identify opportunities for further development.

The tool is for stakeholders involved in reducing alcohol-related harm. Following a methodology established for the tobacco control systems improvement tool, it helps users to:

  • assess operational practice against current evidence
  • consider the extent to which local leadership is supporting action to reduce alcohol harm
  • evidence the outcomes delivered by the partnership against local priorities

Using this tool with your stakeholders

Use this tool and the user handbook, including the checklist and action plan in it, with stakeholders to engage and support the assessment process.

Taking this self-assessment should:

  • bring together stakeholders and support collaborative working and a partnership approach
  • clarify how services and structures support place-based ambitions to reduce alcohol-related harm
  • check that local activity is in line with NICE guidelines
  • recognise good and innovative practice
  • bring together stakeholders and support collaborative working and a partnership approach
  • drive local improvement in outcomes and identify priorities for future action

If you’d like further information about this tool, you can contact the alcohol lead in your local Public Health England (PHE) centre or email clearalcoholteam@phe.gov.uk.
