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.

 

“I welcome the reduction in alcohol related youth anti-social behaviour. The CAP model has promoted effective and innovative partnership work between enforcement agencies, businesses and local community groups and has clearly played an important part in this. I would encourage every area with evidence of alcohol related youth crime to give serious consideration to setting up a CAP to reduce crime and build safer neighbourhoods.”
