Community Alcohol Partnerships

Community Alcohol Partnerships (CAP) aim to tackle underage drinking through co-operation between local stakeholders, such as trading standards, police, licensing, schools health networks, and alcohol retailers. By providing advice, guidance and resources, Community Alcohol Partnerships support communities in developing their own capacity to deliver a co -ordinated, localised response to underage alcohol misuse. Community Alcohol Partnerships address both the demand and supply side of underage drinking through education, intelligence-led enforcement and public perception. In South Wales, we are engaged with two CAPs: Pontardawe and Porth.

Pontardawe Community Alcohol Partnership is a result of a successful bid to the Welsh Government in January 2016, from South Wales Police.

The Community Safety and Neighbourhood Policing Teams in South Wales Police have engaged with the local community and undertaken surveys to understand the perceptions and wishes of local residents. The results of these surveys have been utilised by a multi-agency steering group to shape intervention and reduce under-age drinking in Pontardawe by providing positive diversionary activities for young people in the area.
