Number of Community Alcohol Partnerships to tackle underage drinking

An organisation dedicated to tackling underage drinking is set to double the number of its local groups around the country.

Community Alcohol Partnerships works with retailers, local authorities, schools, health service workers, neighbourhood groups and the police to provide support for young people.

Its latest 'impact report' says that in its first 10 years it has helped cut crime and anti-social behaviour, improved the quality of life for the public and reduced harm to young people.

Achievements include an 80% reduction in alcohol seizures from young people in Edinburgh, 39% less alcohol-related youth anti-social behaviour in Brecon and an 80% cut in youth disorder in Tower Hamlets.

Chair Derek Lewis said: 'CAPs offer an evidence-based and locally-tailored response to underage alcohol problems.

'Our targeted approach means that we bring effective national programmes to areas with greatest harms.

'It is clear from the compelling body of evidence presented in this report that CAPs are making a tangible positive difference to young people, residents and local communities.'
