Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

Airedale Academy CAP Award 2018 2

Next January we are holding our annual CAP celebration event at the House of Commons in London, when we’ll announce the winners of our 2020 CAP Awards.

These awards recognise exceptional achievements in tackling underage drinking during the preceding year and provide a great opportunity to encourage awareness of the vital work which local partnerships are doing to improve our communities.

You can nominate one or more individuals involved in CAP, your local CAP itself or a local organisation which has played a prominent role in making the CAP’s work a success.

If you’d like a nomination form, please contact gillian@communityalcoholpartnerships.co.uk and do remember to return it by Friday October 11, 2019. We’re looking forward to seeing your nominations!

A vital part of the CAP’s work has been engaging with young people, getting them involved in the campaign and building their trust. The CAP held engagement nights with local young people to discuss the issue of underage drinking and anti-social behaviour. They told us there was nothing for them to do – the community centre had no funding, access to the sports field had been cut off and there were very few facilities for young people. So far CAP has held community events, reopened access to the sports field, cleared the discussed BMX track and held street art sessions. Working hard to engage with this traditionally difficult-to-reach group has been key to our success.
