Kids keep going to a neighbour's house who is supplying them with alcohol and they are getting drunk, what can be done about this?

Ask the police logo

Although there is no specific offence of supplying alcohol to children whilst in your own home, there could well be issues in relation to inducing a child and issues relating to the protection of children. These issues could be difficult to prove but it is still worth contacting your local police force and passing on the information. Each case will have to be assessed on its own merits.

It is also advisable to contact all the parents of children concerned to inform them of the situation.
