ASH Scotland has launched a “Children’s Charter” to highlight the goal of creating a tobacco-free generation in Scotland by 2034. It’s aimed at organisations working directly or indirectly with young people and families and puts the focus on Scotland’s ambition to achieve an adult smoking rate of 5% or less in 20 years’ time.
Organisations are being asked to sign up to the Charter’s six principles and to pledge to review their views, policy and practice to help protect children from the harms caused by smoking, reducing the burden of tobacco on our communities. For more information visit our charter page
