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.

The Community Alcohol Partnership in Airedale has been really successful. They’ve helped to reduce anti-social behaviour in the area by 20% this year and done a great job of engaging students too. I was completely blown away by the talent and commitment of the students. They were great at getting the consequences of anti-social behaviour across.
