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.”

Our local CAP has seen significant results: there’s been a 17% reduction in alcohol related anti-social behaviour in just two years. But it’s about more than statistics. One aspect of the CAP has had much higher aims – to change the way young people talk about and view alcohol. That’s a significant challenge given that many of our young people use alcohol as a way of creating a social identity for themselves.
