ASH Scotland is offering training designed to equip workers with knowledge skills and confidence to better support parents/carers to protect their children from second-hand smoke (SHS) and provide strategies to assist them. This training fits in with the Scottish Governments 'Take it right outside' campaign and the GIRFEC principles of helping to keep children safe, healthy, respected and nurtured. The training also fits with protecting children's rights, improving their life chances and other key outcomes of the Scottish Government Early Years & Child Poverty Strategies.
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.
