Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

Next March we’ll be announcing the winners of our annual CAP Awards.  These recognise exceptional achievements in tackling underage drinking during 2020 and demonstrate the vital work that local partnerships are doing to tackle alcohol harm and improve our communities in these most challenging of times.  

In the past CAP awards have been presented at our annual Westminster conference. Given the current pandemic we plan to announce the winners at an online event in March and will arrange for awards to be presented locally. Each award winner will receive £250 towards a CAP project of their choice.  

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

You can download a nomination form here and please return it to [email protected] by Friday December 18, 2020. We’re looking forward to hearing about the fabulous work that CAPs have been doing and seeing your nominations! 

News and Blogs

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.
