On your doorstep - Underage access to alcohol via home delivery services
Underage drinking remains a key concern in Wales. Whilst it is illegal to sell alcohol to persons under 18 years old, in reality, children and young people can and do get hold of alcohol, either via ‘proxy sales’ or directly themselves. Online supermarket grocery services, and latenight and 24 hour alcohol home delivery services, have to date received little attention as a potential source of alcohol for minors. In January and February 2013, an online survey was undertaken, on behalf of Alcohol Concern Cymru, of nearly 1,000 people in Wales aged 14 and 17 years old, to ascertain their usage of such services.
