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.”  

Since this project was delivered there have been dramatic changes in the behaviour of many of the children. This has meant that, for example, three children who were on the verge of exclusion are now fully engaged in the life of the school. The children talk very positively about the work that they completed with CAP and the project generally.
