Funding & Governance

Drinkaware is funded through voluntary contributions from the alcohol industry, however funders do not influence our strategy or operations and have no representation on our board. We strongly believe in a collaborative approach to everything we do and we're working hard to expand our funder base.

Our current funders are:

  • Bushmills Spirits
  • Diageo
  • Edward Dillon
  • Findlater Wines
  • Heineken
  • Irish Distillers Pernod-Ricard
  • Marks and Spencer (Ireland)
  • Molson Coors
  • Richmond Marketing
  • Teeling Whiskey
  • William Grant

You can play your part in reducing the misuse of alcohol by becoming a funder. When you come on board as a Drinkaware funder you will receive exclusive use of our responsibility message and we will keep you updated on our activities and campaigns.

We are growing our board, based on a competency framework linked to our strategy. We welcome expressions of interest from individuals. If you’d like to know more email Yvonne.
