Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

Provision of a range of activities for young people is positively encouraged to ensure that young people have fun, healthy things to do that do not involve alcohol.


Climbing-wallDiversionary activities have included provision of sports using existing leisure and sports facilities, using youth clubs or “youth buses” and local cafes to provide opportunities for young people to drop in and meet in a supervised, safe environment.

 

The Reading Community Alcohol Partnership is clearly very active around the town and it’s good to hear that its multi-agency approach is aiming to tackle underage drinking through direct engagement with young people, enforcing the law with regard to underage consumption and proxy purchasing, and maintaining a constructive dialogue with businesses and retailers.
