CAP is hosting a webinar on March 23 to showcase best practice in reducing alcohol-related harm and vulnerability to young adults.

There will be short presentations from key speakers including:

• Tracy Lumb - Senior Project Manager from SOS-UK who will talk about its Drink ReThink and Alcohol Impact programmes

• Helena Conibear - CEO of the Alcohol Education Trust - reporting on its submission to the House of Lords Report on drink spiking

• Sylvia Oates - CEO of Best Bar None – presenting Best Bar None’s work to reduce alcohol harm in the night time economy

• Rita King - joint CEO of the Safer Business Network talking about Ask for Angela and the Women’s Night Safety Charter

 The webinar will also discuss setting up your own CAP to reduce alcohol harm among young people in your community. 

It will take place from 10am-11.30am on Wednesday, 23 March 2022 and you can register for this FREE event here. We hope to see you there!

 

This is the second in a series of CAP webinars, following our hugely successful event last November when experts discussed how CAP’s focus on providing alcohol education, working with retailers and delivering positive activities for young people is so effective.

A vital part of the CAP’s work has been engaging with young people, getting them involved in the campaign and building their trust. The CAP held engagement nights with local young people to discuss the issue of underage drinking and anti-social behaviour. They told us there was nothing for them to do – the community centre had no funding, access to the sports field had been cut off and there were very few facilities for young people. So far CAP has held community events, reopened access to the sports field, cleared the discussed BMX track and held street art sessions. Working hard to engage with this traditionally difficult-to-reach group has been key to our success.
