Newquay Safe

Cornwall Council is working as part of Newquay Safe, a multi agency partnership, to address the many complex and varied issues that Newquay currently faces.

The award winning Newquay Safe Partnership was established in July 2009 and consists of approximately 30 officers and members from 15 different Council services and partner agencies, along with representatives of local groups and organisations. The Partnership is currently working on over 50 individual projects.

Newquay is working hard to address the variety of issues that the town, its residents and businesses are dealing with around alcohol related anti social behaviour.

The Newquay Safe Partnership's main aim is to enhance Newquay’s environment and atmosphere for everyone.

If your child is visiting Newquay, unaccompanied, to celebrate the end of their exams its important for you to talk to them about alcohol. Not all young people drink - but it's best they hear about alcohol from you to make sure they have accurate information to help them make responsible decisions about drinking when they're faced with them.

Drinkaware's Your kids and alcohol leaflet has facts and advice to help parents take the right approach on alcohol with their children.

Drinkaware's 'Your Kids and Alcohol' campaign is encouraging parents to talk to their children about alcohol before they start drinking, ideally in the pre-teen years. The average age children first have a drink is currently 13.8 years. Drinkaware advice parents to delay the age of a child's first drink to make them less likely to drink more and more frequently as they grow up.

Newquay Safe is showcased in Baroness Newlove's concluding report for the Government's vision for active, safer communities.

Newquay Safe Partners are  working nationally to help shape future legislation.
