Make Smoking History for Community Services
Many people that access health and community services have considerably higher smoking rates than the general population, and face additional barriers which make it harder for them to reduce and quit. As a result, people that are often already experiencing disadvantage and marginalisation carry an unfair amount of the death, disease, grief and financial stress caused by tobacco.
The Make Smoking History for Community Services Program believes that nobody should live in poverty, be socially excluded or die early because of tobacco. The program aims to reduce tobacco-related inequities experienced by people accessing health and community services, whilst raising awareness of the social injustice caused by smoking. In partnership with Make Smoking History, health and community services are encouraged to take steps to support clients to reduce and quit tobacco use, and to create healthy smoke-free environments.
