The journey so far

In 2017, with support and leadership from North East Healthy Communities, eleven organisations across the region formed the North East Healthy Drinks Alliance, with the aim of addressing high consumption of sugary drinks and promoting water consumption.

Members of the Alliance signed up to the North East Healthy Drinks Charter and adopted the collective impact framework to guide and inform their work as a large, cross-sectoral, multi-organisation partnership.

For more information on our journey, please refer to the report: North East Healthy Drinks Project: Early evaluation of a collective impact approach.
