Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

Farley Luton CAP launch

The Farley Hill (Luton) Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) was launched at an engagement event on Saturday (16 June) organised by the Community Team at Bedfordshire Police. The event, in the Market Square in Farley Hill, Luton, was also attended by representatives of Luton Borough Council and ResoLUTiONs, which offers crime prevention advice. The day focused on addressing the issues raised by local communities, which included drinking, drugs and nuisance biking. CAP showed its pavement stencil outside the Co-op, which warns adults not to buy alcohol on behalf of children. It was a successful day which received a warm welcome and excellent feedback from local businesses and residents.

A vital part of the CAP’s work has been engaging with young people, getting them involved in the campaign and building their trust. The CAP held engagement nights with local young people to discuss the issue of underage drinking and anti-social behaviour. They told us there was nothing for them to do – the community centre had no funding, access to the sports field had been cut off and there were very few facilities for young people. So far CAP has held community events, reopened access to the sports field, cleared the discussed BMX track and held street art sessions. Working hard to engage with this traditionally difficult-to-reach group has been key to our success.
