Why is 18-25 year olds the appropriate target audience?
Drinking Age
In the UK from the age of eighteen you are legally allowed to buy alcohol and get into clubs. This is where young adults fail to see the dangers of binge drinking as they are so excited that they are now legal. This health promotion campaign will make sure that it explains to these young people the importance of moderating how much they are drinking, making sure that they spread their drinks out and also cutting down binge drinking and hopefully stop completely for the main reason of saving their health and protecting their health for the future. 18-25 year olds are the main targets of individuals on a night out in the UK and this is one main reason towards my target audience

As they are still at a young age in life they’re still part of the most vulnerable age, where anything could happen to them. AS these ages they are either in full time education or in a full time job, this will help make sure that the health promotion campaign is offered to everyone as they will always be there and for schools they can be taken out and a talk can be given to them from either someone from the police, someone who has experienced bad consequences of binge drinking or just a talk from the teachers explaining the effects to make sure that they are aware of the consequences of their actions maybe. Binge drinking is a rising concern in the UK, alcohol may not affect a range of stoical and age groups but I believe that 18-25 year olds are targeted group due to the increase in statistics.

Even though alcohol is the second drug to kill the most people after cigarettes there I still such a high percentage of deaths due to alcohol. By educated the people that are most worthwhile will mean that there will get more from the health campaign and will be educated upon the different effects binge drinking can have. Therefore, by making my focus being towards 18-25 year olds these effects that binge drinking can have will be taken more seriously and they can take more action straight away to stop them being affected by these
