Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

Farley Luton CAP launch

The Farley Hill (Luton) Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) was launched at an engagement event on Saturday (16 June) organised by the Community Team at Bedfordshire Police. The event, in the Market Square in Farley Hill, Luton, was also attended by representatives of Luton Borough Council and ResoLUTiONs, which offers crime prevention advice. The day focused on addressing the issues raised by local communities, which included drinking, drugs and nuisance biking. CAP showed its pavement stencil outside the Co-op, which warns adults not to buy alcohol on behalf of children. It was a successful day which received a warm welcome and excellent feedback from local businesses and residents.

As Chief Executive of the Chartered Trading Standards Institute it is great to see the growth of Community Alcohol Partnerships. They are an amazing way to bring businesses, regulators and communities together to deliver lasting solutions to the issues that underage drinking has on communities and young people. One of my proudest achievements in trading standards was the establishment of the first ever Community Alcohol Partnership and I know colleagues up and down the country are equally proud of the benefits that their local schemes are bringing.
