Our new report: An alcohol-free childhood - Action to ensure parents keep their children free from alcohol harm draws on extensive research that shows parents are largely unaware of guidance from the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) that the healthiest and safest option is for children to remain alcohol free up to the age of 18.
We believe the Government and others should actively promote the CMO guidance and do more to ensure that parents are made aware of this advice and actively involved in alcohol education for children and young people. You can download a copy of the report here and slides on key findings here
Community Alcohol Partnerships (CAP) is a Community Interest Company (CiC) which brings together and supports local partnerships of councils, police, retailers, schools, health providers and community groups to reduce alcohol harm among young people, improve their health and wellbeing and enhance their communities.
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 one up, the CAP team will be able to give help and advice.
