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.”

Alcohol-related violence has fallen – but it is clear that alcohol misuse has a significant impact on young people and their communities across the country and partnerships such as this are an effective way to tackle this issue. Easy access to alcohol can sometimes put young people at greater risk of dangers. CAPs play a vital role in bringing key stakeholders together to tackle underage drinking, helping to keep young people and communities safe.
