Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

We warmly welcome the second round of Local Alcohol Action Areas (LAAAs) announced by the Government today (January 27, 2017) and the opportunity to support local communities in reducing alcohol-related harm.  

Community Alcohol Partnerships (CAPs) play a vital role in reducing underage drinking and associated harms in local communities. They are managed and delivered locally via partnerships between local authorities, police, retailers, schools and neighbourhood groups and health providers, offering a flexible model tailored to fit the needs of each community. This targeted partnership working and local action has proven to be highly effective in tackling alcohol-misuse - in some communities, CAPs have been shown to reduce underage drinking and antisocial behaviour by as much as 40%. Further information on their impact can be found at: http://www.communityalcoholpartnerships.co.uk

We are looking forward to working with Local Alcohol Partnerships in the new LAAAs together with other partners including Best Bar None, Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS), Purple Flag and Pubwatch, to further reduce the harms associated with underage drinking.

CAP has an extraordinary track record in reducing alcohol consumption and related crimes among under-18’s. At the heart of this success is the importance each CAP places on engaging young people themselves as key drivers of change within their own communities.
