Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

The Alnwick and Amble Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP), led by Northumberland County Council, is holding a range of activities throughout a week of action starting July 9th, highlighting the dangers associated with alcohol and underage drinking.
 
The CAP partnership exists to tackle underage alcohol use and highlight the associated risks for young people, such as, physical harm, increased risk of vulnerability and exploitation and also of drink driving.
 
Judith Davies, Community Safety Officer at Northumberland County Council and coordinator of the Alnwick and Amble Community Alcohol Partnership explained: “Throughout the course of the awareness week, CAP are working to engage with young people, their parents, schools, youth organisations, local retailers and licensees to educate them around the potential risks associated with alcohol so they can make informed and educated decisions later on.”
 
Northumberland County Councillor Veronica Jones, cabinet member for Wellbeing and Health, said: “We are proud to be working with Alnwick and Amble CAP, highlighting the important message of the dangers of underage drinking.
 
“Through a range of events we are talking to retailers, young people and shoppers throughout Northumberland to highlight the dangers associated with drinking alcohol while also tackling the problem of selling alcohol to underage young people.”

Alcohol and underage drinking is the underlying cause of a range of problems so by tackling this issue through early intervention and by taking prompt, positive action whenever problems start to emerge we can make a real difference in communities, whilst at the same time helping to stop young people being drawn further into offending and into the Criminal Justice System. I am delighted to offer my support to the Community Alcohol Partnership projects in South Wales.
