Tobacco toolkit for local alliances

NEW: Visit your region's page for information and data about smoking and tobacco control there. Our reckoner (2013 update) allows you calculate the cost of smoking in your locality. We have also updated the document presenting a digest of public opinion in your region on key tobacco issues.

Working together, ASH, the Faculty of Public Health, the Local Government Group, FRESH North East, Tobacco Free Futures (formerly Smokefree North West) and Smokefree South West have produced a set of materials for Tobacco Control Alliances to use with key Councillors to help ensure that tackling tobacco use is high on the local public health agenda. Together these resources will allow you to:

  • demonstrate the scale of the harm locally caused by tobacco use and the contribution this makes to health inequalities,
  • demonstrate the cost to local communities, local economies and service providers,
  • demonstrate the evidence of effectiveness of local action on tobacco and health.

The materials are designed for you easily to integrate local data from the APHO local tobacco control profiles and a new reckoner for local economic impacts.
