Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) ~ Underage Drinking

Community Alcohol Partnerships (CAP) bring together local retailers & licensees, trading standards, police, health services, education providers and other local stakeholders to tackle the problem of underage drinking.

Reading CAP helps develop a culture where both adults and young people drink responsibly; ensuring both understand safe consumption limits and the affects alcohol can have on health.

CAP activity focusses on alcohol education, enforcement, public perception, communication and diversionary activity.

We are pleased bring you the first local CAP Newsletter for Retailers.  The aim is to bring useful information and guidance to retailers to help them be compliant and improve their businesses. Please see weblink below.
