You can pick up information and chat to our specialist stop smoking advisers on Quit4Life stands at events all over the county, ranging from fetes to health seminars. If you are planning an event and would like to invite Quit4Life along please contact us. We will be glad to attend if there is an opportunity to engage with smokers who may be interested in quitting or with professionals or volunteers who may be in a position to refer smokers to Quit4Life.
If we are unable to send an adviser to your event we can arrange to send you a supply of flyers, leaflets and posters to put on display.
Schools and Educational Organisations
Quit4Life supports Hampshire schools and educational organisations to promote a smoke free future for students, parents and staff.
Through partnership work, we offer an evidence-informed, smoking prevention programme which takes a whole school approach to reducing smoking prevalence. This includes:
- The Smoke Free Ambassador Programme A peer led initiative, where pupils receive intensive training in smoking prevention to share with their year group. See how pupils of Testwood Sports College used their Sports Day to educate classmates about the effects of smoking on sports performance.
- Support for development of effective school policy on smoking
- Support for encouraging parents/carers and staff to quit
- Training for staff – For organisations that meet certain criteria, we may be able to offer training for teachers and support staff.
- Advice on smoking prevention curriculum content
To ensure the best use of resources, we target these interventions at schools in areas where there is demographic data showing high smoking prevalence. Whilst we may not always be able to offer the full programme to your organisation, we may be able to give general advice and resources to promote Quit4Life. For more information please contact us.
Protecting children from the harmful effects of second hand smoke is important to Quit4Life. To support this, we offer training for staff working with families in Hampshire. This includes the effects of second hand smoke on children’s health, steps to make a home truly smoke free and how to raise the issue of smoke free homes with families.
If you work with families in Hampshire to improve health, we may be able to help you. For more information please contact us.
