1 January, 2013
Submitted: 30 April, 2015
Please describe how you have supported local community activity to tackle alcohol's social and health harms, over the last year (2000 characters limit):
HEINEKEN funds Best Bar None (BBN) and Community Alcohol Partnerships (CAP).
A total of 32 new CAPs were launched during including 9 new CAPs in Local Alcohol Action Areas (LAAAs) - bringing to 12 the total number of CAPs in LAAAs and 84 to date across the UK.
Individual CAP schemes determine their own action plans and typically will deliver as part of the CAP project any or all of the following: diversionary activity and outreach work for under 18s; enforcement activity; retailer training; alcohol education for young people; teacher training; parent education/campaigns; locally tailored campaigns designed to raise awareness of the laws on underage/proxy purchase and penalties. Increasingly, successful CAPs now develop action plans to tackle other forms of alcohol harm (e.g. street drinking, young adults) once underage harms have reduced. Quarterly progress reports with detailed information on CAP scheme actions for the period in question are available on request and are supplied to all funders and stakeholders.
There are 38 active BBN schemes across England & Wales and 27 Schemes operating in Scotland. Of the confirmed Schemes in England and Wales there are currently 26 Council-led Schemes, one Police-led and 11 Schemes being led either directly by the trade or by the private sector (BIDs) working in partnership with the statutory authorities. 750 venues are involved across England & Wales.
7 new areas have recently expressed interest in establishing a BBN scheme (Swansea, Bishops Stortford, Bath & North-West Somerset, Hertford & Ware, Aberystwyth & Gwynedd). BBN is now working closely with partners in these areas. This brings the total of active or consulting schemes up to 67 in England and Wales and 94 including Scotland. BBN is developing a London project in partnership with the Metropolitan Police and the Deputy Mayor’s office. It is intended that all 32 London Boroughs will aunch & operate a dedicated scheme within their own area.
