Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

This month, CAP funded Police Scotland to hold a workshop for 10 young people followed by a Go Karting event.

 

The event was organised by Police Scotland and Circle Scotland, an Edinburgh-based charity working to improve the lives of children, and was intended to involve young people who might be part of gangs, not attending education or drinking and causing anti-social behavior.

 

The group engaged well in the workshop, which explored issues around underage drinking and then went off to the Go Karting event.

 

Martin Crow of Police Scotland said: “The event went really well and certainly helped me and my colleagues to break down barriers with a number of our local young people.”  

Being part of the CAP has brought recognition from the community that we are trying to stop underage drinking. We have also seen a significant decline in attempted under age- purchases and litter has significantly dropped around our premises. I believe that the Midsomer Norton CAP is led with a passion that I have not seen before in a local venture.
