Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

Orkney launch

Our newest CAP was launched in November at the Pickaquoy Centre, Orkney, where co-ordinator Bob McKenzie was joined by CAP Director Kate Winstanley and partners including Orkney Licensing Forum, local counselling service OACAS, Police Scotland, Scottish Ambulance Service, Fire Scotland, Orkney College, retailers, community organisations and local schools. They will be working together to improve the lives of local young people and the community.

Liam McArthur MSP, who is patron of OACAS and a member of the Scottish Governments Criminal Justice Committee, sent a message of support: “I am delighted to support the launch of the Orkney CAP and the good work that it will be doing.  Like communities across the country, Orkney faces real challenges in addressing problems arising out of the misuse of alcohol, notably by young people.  A collaborative approach, involving a range of different partners, seems to me to be the best and perhaps only way of meeting those challenges and making progress.”

The Reading Community Alcohol Partnership is clearly very active around the town and it’s good to hear that its multi-agency approach is aiming to tackle underage drinking through direct engagement with young people, enforcing the law with regard to underage consumption and proxy purchasing, and maintaining a constructive dialogue with businesses and retailers.
