Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

The Lupset Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) in Wakefield launched on February 6 at the St George’s Community Centre with partners including Spectrum Health, Wakefield District Housing, West Yorkshire Police, Wakefield City Council, St George’s Community Centre, Youth workers, Schools, ASDA, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons and members of the community.

Alan Simpson, CAP Advisor for the East of England and Scotland said: “I am pleased to have been asked to create a CAP in Lupset and I am looking forward to supporting the work here and making a positive change to the lives of young people and the community. 

The multi-agency action plan we have created builds upon best practice for tackling alcohol related harm to young people and all the partners will work together to reduce the sale of alcohol to young people, advise them on the dangers of drinking and provide alcohol-free activities.”

Across the country, more than 160 CAPs have had positive impacts on reducing local crime, anti-social behaviour, litter, feelings of safety and reductions in underage purchasing of alcohol.

Period Reports

This innovative partnership is an excellent example of how public bodies, charities and private companies can work together to resolve a community problem. Not only have the partners contributed to the success of the project but also the youngsters of Brecon, whose involvement and commitment have also contributed to this success.
