Help us grow CAP’s work in Scotland
We are delighted to have secured funding to embark on a strategy of rapid growth in Scotland, which will allow us to launch up to 12 new CAPs over the next three years.
We are now looking for an outstanding individual to join our Board to help us grow our work.
We are seeking a non-executive director, based in Scotland, to join our Board. This is an opportunity to take a leadership role in helping to change Scotland’s relationship with alcohol, starting with young people, and to make a real difference to their lives.
CAP is a UK-wide Community Interest Company which aims to prevent localised underage drinking. It has a proud record of success and an ambitious strategy for the future. This is a voluntary role – for more information, take a look here.
Community Alcohol Partnerships (CAP) is a Community Interest Company (CiC) whose aim is to reduce alcohol harm in local communities from drinking by young people under 25 with a particular emphasis on preventing underage drinking. A combination of education, enforcement of Challenge 25, engagement of the community and local businesses and provision of appropriate diversionary activity for young people is the hallmark of the CAP model. All our projects are run as locally managed multi agency partnership programmes with a clear role for alcohol retailers and licensees.
Our annual CAP Awards recognise exceptional achievements in tackling underage drinking during 2020 and demonstrate the vital work that local partnerships are doing to tackle alcohol harm and improve our communities in these most challenging of times. Each award winner will receive £250 towards a CAP project of their choice.
If there is a CAP scheme in your area, we can put you in touch with the local project co-ordinator, who will explain how to get involved. If there is no CAP in your area but you would like to talk about setting up a CAP, the CAP team will be able to give help and advice.
