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".

"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".
