Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

Smashed Wakefield2Airedale Academy and Outwood City Fields Academy have hosted an educational performing arts initiative to support the work being done by the Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) in the Wakefield District.

 

The Smashed Project is an educational theatre initiative with a vision to break the culture of underage drinking and reduce alcohol related harm around the world. The project uses theatre to get across a story with an unhappy ending.  A workshop then takes place with students who come up with answers to situations which result in a different and happier outcome to the play. 

 

The project is just one of a range of initiatives supported by the Wakefield District CAP, which aims to reduce underage drinking and associated anti-social behaviour.

A vital part of the CAP’s work has been engaging with young people, getting them involved in the campaign and building their trust. The CAP held engagement nights with local young people to discuss the issue of underage drinking and anti-social behaviour. They told us there was nothing for them to do – the community centre had no funding, access to the sports field had been cut off and there were very few facilities for young people. So far CAP has held community events, reopened access to the sports field, cleared the discussed BMX track and held street art sessions. Working hard to engage with this traditionally difficult-to-reach group has been key to our success.
