A7(a). Community Actions to Tackle Alcohol Harms
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):
One of Sainsbury’s corporate values is to make a positive difference to the communities in which we operate, and our support for Community Alcohol Partnership (CAPs) is a particularly good example of what this means in practice. We have been involved in CAP since its inception in 2007 and have contributed to its development, both via our involvement in CAPs across the country and through its governance structure, with our Head of Legal Services sitting on the CAP Board.
We are active in 23 CAPs and we will always support a CAP when it is set up in an area in which we have stores. We contribute to a CAP in a number of different ways; we use our experience and Think 25 training material to train small independent retailers on how to implement a successful underage policy, we participate in patrols which seek to raise awareness and help reduce underage sales and underage drinking, we attend and contribute to meetings and offer meeting facilities where possible, and we support community awareness activity to promote the CAP.
