Smokefree Action

216 Users are discussing this topic

The Smokefree Action Coalition is a group of organisations committed to promoting public health. They came together initially to lobby for smokefree workplaces and are now committed to reducing the harm caused by tobacco more generally.

Their 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.

Their 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 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.
