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.
Schemes 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".
We have just released our Spring Newsletter 2016 which contains lots of interesting news and updates on CAP including the launch of our 100th Partnership in Biggleswade, launches in Tower Hamlets, Ilkley and Todmorden and a powerful drama production by students in Castleford which has been praised by MP Yvette Cooper.
“Being part of the CAP has brought recognition from the community that we are trying to stop underage drinking. We have also seen a significant decline in attempted under age- purchases and litter has significantly dropped around our premises. I believe that the Midsomer Norton CAP is led with a passion that I have not seen before in a local venture.“

CAP encourages local partnership working to tackle underage alcohol misuse and associated anti social behaviour. CAP is unique in that it recognises that retail is part of the solution and has been shown to be more effective than enforcement alone.
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 up a CAP, the CAP team will be able to give help and advice.
