A Community Alcohol Partnership has been launched in Brecon town following successful initiatives in a number of areas around Britain.
BCAP is a partnership between the County Council and Town Council, Dyfed Powys Police, Health Authority, Retailers, Local Schools, Youth Support Groups, amongst others, and backed by Community Alcohol Partnerships Ltd
The aim is to reduce young people’s access to alcohol by building on the existing work undertaken by the Council’s Trading Standards and Licensing Services and local Police Teams.
Together the partners plan to inform and advise young people and the community on sensible drinking limits as well as help tackle alcohol related problems.
A key aspect of the partnership will be to break down the barriers between retailers and the enforcement agencies, and to recognise that by working together with the wider community, everyone can make a difference.
The Partnership invites all members of the community to help tackle underage drinking.
