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.

News and Blogs

Since this project was delivered there have been dramatic changes in the behaviour of many of the children. This has meant that, for example, three children who were on the verge of exclusion are now fully engaged in the life of the school. The children talk very positively about the work that they completed with CAP and the project generally.
