SHAAP, which was established in 2006 by the Scottish Medical Royal Colleges and based within the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, is a clinical group aimed at tackling the public health issue of alcohol-related harm to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Scotland through a range of evidence-based approaches.
Last month, SHAAP was named as the first sponsor of Scottish Women's Football's National Performance League and NPL Cup, the elite level for girls' club football in Scotland and the body lauded its stance on not accepting alcohol sponsorship.
