Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

We are delighted to have secured funding to embark on a strategy of rapid growth in Scotland, which will allow us to launch up to 12 new CAPs there over the next three years.  

We are now looking for an outstanding individual to join our Board to help us grow our work in Scotland.  

Non-executive Director 

We are seeking a non-executive director, based in Scotland, to join our Board. This is an opportunity to take a leadership role in helping to change Scotland’s relationship with alcohol, starting with young people, and to make a real difference to their lives. 

CAP is a UK-wide Community Interest Company which aims to prevent localised underage drinking. It has a proud record of success and an ambitious strategy for the future.   

This is a voluntary role – the deadline for applications is November 13, 2020. For more information, download the job description here

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.
