About Smokefree Action

The Smokefree Action Coalition is the group of organisations listed below committed to promoting public health. We came together initially to lobby for smokefree workplaces and are now committed to reducing the harm caused by tobacco more generally. Following a campaign by the SFAC the coalition government published its Tobacco Plan in March 2011 which set out a comprehensive strategy containing ambitions to reduce smoking prevalence to 18.5% or less by 2015.

The SFAC is committed to supporting adequately funded implementation of the Plan at national and local level. We also urge the government to continue to update and improve its strategy over time to ensure that it remains effective. We are pleased that the government has committed to consult on plain packaging and following the consultation we support the introduction of legislation to implement plain packaging in the UK in advance of the next election.

The 2011-15 strategy for the Smokefree Action Coalition is available as a pdf here.

Our Objective

To continue to reduce the harm from tobacco by ensuring that an effective, fully funded comprehensive tobacco control strategy remains a central element of government health policy.

Our Mission

Smoking is still the major preventable cause of death and disease and inequalities in health, killing over 100,000 people across the UK each year. One in four adults still smoke, and children of smokers remain exposed to secondhand smoke. The Smokefree Action Coalition wants the UK Government to continue to develop and implement an adequately funded comprehensive tobacco control strategy in order to keep driving down smoking rates and protect people from the harmful effects of secondhand smoke.

Our case put simply

The UK is a world leader in tobacco control policy yet tobacco continues to cause over 100,000 deaths per year. Smokers and non smokers, adults and children, all suffer from the burden of tobacco smoke. Some groups suffer more than others and the higher rates of smoking among the poorest and most disadvantaged increases health inequalities. It isn’t a simple matter of choice, it is hard for smokers to quit because tobacco is so addictive. There is much more that can be done to reduce the harm caused by smoking to smokers and those around them. The public are keen for further tobacco reform and it is essential for government policy to continue to evolve and develop its tobacco policy if smoking prevalence is to continue to be driven down year on year.
