All CAP staff and advisers are now working from home, but please be assured we are still working to support those communities that are experiencing problems with underage and young adult drinking.
THE GOVERNMENT HAS ADVISED THAT DURING THIS TIME WE SHOULD:
Help control the virus
To protect yourself and others, when you leave home you must:
- wash hands - keep washing your hands regularly
- cover face - wear a face covering over your nose and mouth in enclosed spaces
- make space - stay at least a metre away from people not in your household
If you are feeling unwell, get a test and do not leave home for at least 10 days.
We recognise that many of our community partners such as local authorities, schools, retailers, police and youth organisations, are focusing on essential services and doing everything they can to keep everyone safe during the pandemic. So a lot of our activities will necessarily be put on hold for the moment, such as the physical launches of new CAPs and community meetings. But our advisers remain available to help with support and advice by telephone or email.
We’ll also be increasing our communications during this time and putting out a regular newsletter to keep you up to date with the latest developments and advice. If you don’t already receive our newsletter, you can sign up here..
