Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

A Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) will be launched in Ollerton, Boughton and Edwinstowe (OBE) on Monday 1st October to tackle underage drinking and anti-social behaviour. 

 

CAPs are made up of partnerships between retailers, local authorities, police, schools, neighbourhood groups and health providers, working together to empower communities to tackle alcohol-related harm to young people and improve the quality of life for residents.

 

We aim to reduce the sale of alcohol to young people, advise them on the dangers of drinking and provide alcohol-free activities through youth services and local charities.

 

Across the country CAPs have had outstanding impacts on local crime, anti-social behaviour, litter, feelings of safety and reductions in underage purchasing of alcohol. 

   

Our formal launch of the Ollerton, Boughton & Edwinstowe CAP will take place at Ollerton Town Hall on Monday 1st October from 10am.

CAP acts as a great catalyst to broaden community safety partnership working. The involvement of retailers and others to take personal responsibility for their communities can introduce different thinking and innovation to effectively resolve local issues that impact adversely on people’s lives.
