The activities and resources below will help young people to identify with the benefits of being smoke-free. There are many ways that you can engage the young people you work with to make positive and healthy choices on tobacco.

#befreeachievemore

The #befreeachievemore campaign helps young people to identify with being happier, better off and achieving more by being smoke-free. Our free resources include a range of top tips that will enable you to have conversations with those aged 16 – 24 about smoking in the context of their overall health and wellbeing, while our posters will help you to highlight the campaign to those you work with.

#notafavour

Support Scotland’s campaign to stop young people being given tobacco. Most young people who smoke get their cigarettes from friends, family and other people they know. Often this is thought of as doing them a favour. The #notafavour campaign sets out to challenge the attitudes and assumptions that lie behind giving tobacco to young people. For more information and free resources visit www.notafavour.scot or tweet your support using the hashtag #notafavour.
