Community Alcohol Partnership urges people to have their say about underage drinking in their area
Take part in the survey here.
Shropshire’s Community Alcohol Partnership (Shrop-CAP) is urging residents in Shropshire to give their views on underage drinking in their area by completing a short survey.
The survey which had now been extended till the end of October, has been set up to help identify and address those area’s affected by the impact associated with underage drinking, such as anti-social behavior, crime and health problems.
Shrop-CAP is a multi-agency partnership set up to oversee a scheme to reduce the consequences of underage drinking thanks to funding of £90,000, over two years (£45,000 per year), through the Department of Communities and Local Government. The Partnership (Shrop-CAP) comprises of Shropshire’s Drug and Alcohol Action Team, West Mercia Police, and Shropshire Council’s positive activities and trading standards teams.
The partnership is working on many initiatives, including tackling proxy purchasing, where over 18s purchase alcohol and supply it to young people who are under 18; providing alcohol awareness and information to communities; and working with young people on developing positive activities. Shrop-CAP also works with local traders to ensure they are fully aware of the possible consequences of
