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.

I welcome the reduction in alcohol related youth anti-social behaviour. The CAP model has promoted effective and innovative partnership work between enforcement agencies, businesses and local community groups and has clearly played an important part in this. I would encourage every area with evidence of alcohol related youth crime to give serious consideration to setting up a CAP to reduce crime and build safer neighbourhoods.
