Alcohol education is an important part of the CAP approach, to ensure that young people are equipped to make the right decisions about issues including drugs, anti-social and criminal behaviour.
For several years we have offered schools the opportunity to take part in the Royal Society of Public Health Young Health Champions (YHC) initiative. This Level 2 qualification aims to give youngsters the skills, knowledge and confidence to become peer mentors and take part in social action campaigns in their local communities. We are very proud to be an accredited centre for rolling out this programme, enabling us to get important health messages out to youngsters all around the UK.
In response to the Covid-19 crisis we have piloted an online delivery method for the course - we’re hugely encouraged by the results so far and are hoping to extend the pilot scheme to further CAP areas. Read all about it here.
