Hard work has paid off for Corby Borough Council’s Safer Corby Team as they celebrate a nomination for the Community Alcohol Partnership’s (CAP) Celebration Event being held later this month.
CAP’s aim is to encourage partnership working across all sectors to reduce the levels of alcohol harm in local communities by young people under the age of 25. Key areas of activity are focused on education, enforcement and business engagement.
The nomination falls under the CAP of the Year England category and comes following the Safer Corby Team’s commitment towards tackling underage drinking as part of the Corby Community Alcohol Partnership.
Examples of ongoing activity delivered so far include alcohol awareness sessions to both primary and secondary schools within the borough, delivery of education supporting national Dry January campaign at Tresham College and collaborative working with the Corby Pubwatch forum to tackle alcohol related ASB and crime on the Corby Old Village night time economy.
Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Housing and Neighbourhood Services, Cllr Bob Eyles, said:
“To be nominated is a fantastic achievement and demonstrates the quality and breadth of work being delivered by the Safer Corby Team and partners to help tackle this important community issue. Well done to everyone involved.”
Representatives from the Safer Corby Team will attend the invite only awards night on Wednesday 29th January 2020 at the House of Lords, Westminster, London.
