A7(a). Community Actions to Tackle Alcohol Harms
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 30 April, 2014
Please describe how you have supported local community activity to tackle alcohol's social and health harms, over the last year.
ACS continues to support Community Alcohol Partnerships as set out in our delivery plan, through ongoing funding, support and promotion of the CAP projects. ACS continues to actively promote the scheme to its membership, both to keep members updated on the work CAP is involved in, and to make sure small shops know how to get involved when and where new CAPs are being proposed.
ACS also remains a CAP Board member and, through this role, ensures small shops are an active voice as the scope and direction of CAP expands.
Each year CAP are invited by ACS to present at a number of external events to help inform and raise awareness of the scheme amongst stakeholders. ACS also promotes CAP through its own engagement with relevant decision-makers, both locally when talking to licensing officials, police, trading standards and local politicians, and nationally, via our dialogue with central government. Information is also provided on our website to help our members learn about the scheme and how they can get involved.
ACS is also working with the Social Responsibility Alliance to help highlight the benefits of industry best practice schemes, including CAP, to other local authorities, in a further effort to promote the benefits of partnership working.
