Award winning and innovative anti-smoking projects for young people

ANTI-TOBACCO Projects

We deliver youth led social action projects in communities across the UK.

 

Our local projects focus on anti-tobacco activities and workshops using film and social media to engage young people in schools, youth clubs and informal youth settings.

 

Our Cut Films competition supports young people to research the impact of tobacco and smoking, and make a 2-minute advert to persuade their friends’ not to smoke.

 

They share their advert in their local community, campaigning for votes, to spread their anti-smoking messages and to signpost to local stop smoking services.

‘This has been an extraordinary project combining a Year 7 PSHE unit about smoking, with film and editing skills. The students and staff involved were highly motivated and learnt so much more than if they had been sitting in a classroom. I cannot recommend it highly enough.’
