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.”  

Period Reports

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.
