The Lincolnshire service is a multi-agency group of representatives from organisations across the county who share an interest in smoking related issues and a desire to tackle them locally through the 'Lincolnshire Tobacco Control Plan 2013-2018'
The local tobacco control plan sets out a number of key objectives, which all aim to support the Government’s three key ambitions for tobacco control:
- Reduce smoking prevalence among adults in England
- Reduce smoking prevalence among young people in England
- Reduce smoking in pregnancy in England
What we do
- We co-ordinate local activity that supports national campaigns such as No Smoking Day and Stoptober.
- We co-ordinate local responses to Government consultations on tobacco control issues, and support the implementation of new legislation.
- We support Lincolnshire Trading Standards and Lincolnshire Police in their responsibility for tackling the supply of illicit tobacco.
- We develop awareness campaigns to inform the public of the health and wider implications of smoking.
- We run the Lincolnshire Smoke Free Homes & Cars Project which aims to protect those at risk from second hand smoke
- We offer support, guidance and resources to support tobacco control, smoking awareness and peer mentoring education programmes for young people.
- We offer the nationally accredited BIIAB Level 1 Awards in Smoking Awareness, and Alcohol Awareness aimed at key stage 3 aged learners (11-14) free to education groups.
- FREE loan of resources supporting the delivery of smoking awareness and tobacco control education.
