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.

Period Reports

This innovative partnership is an excellent example of how public bodies, charities and private companies can work together to resolve a community problem. Not only have the partners contributed to the success of the project but also the youngsters of Brecon, whose involvement and commitment have also contributed to this success.
