MAIT (Mobile Alcohol Intervention Team) is a partnership initiative between Clued Up, Police Scotland, NHS Fife, and Fife Council. The initiative’s aim is to engage with young people out on the streets An alcohol brief intervention including a FAST/CRAFFT assessment of their alcohol use is offered. This is delivered every Friday night across different parts of Fife between 6pm and 10pm when young people are drinking on the streets. Clued Up do a follow up with the young people who have engaged in MAIT and a fuller assessment of their needs is done. The outcomes are:
- Reduction in the negative impact of underage drinking and the wider community.
- Increase in young people’s awareness of their own drinking and its potential effects on their health and well-being.
