Lifeline recognise that this group of the population have different needs as such and are delivering a project to specifically deliver key prevention messages across Calderdale, so that over 50’s become more informed to make choices about their alcohol consumption and are equipped to support their positive health and wellbeing in the future… volunteer today…
