Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

CAP has developed a range of materials, including banners, posters and leaflets, which can be adapted as required to suit the needs of local schemes.


Dinnington launchSchemes are encouraged to make use of these communication tools and to make use also of local radio, local press, social networking media, residents’ meetings etc - to try and ensure that the community understands the work of the local CAP and is fully engaged and involved.

 

Advice, tools and resources for communicating key messages to the local community are available to all CAP schemes via the "Login area".

“I welcome the reduction in alcohol related youth anti-social behaviour. The CAP model has promoted effective and innovative partnership work between enforcement agencies, businesses and local community groups and has clearly played an important part in this. I would encourage every area with evidence of alcohol related youth crime to give serious consideration to setting up a CAP to reduce crime and build safer neighbourhoods.”

Mike Penning
Minister of State for Policing, Criminal Justice and Policing
