  • participate in local and regional networks
  • support government action at national level
  • protect tobacco control work from the commercial and vested interests of the tobacco industry
  • monitor the progress of our plans

We want to help reduce the harm caused by all tobacco and particularly illegal tobacco, which is sold in shops, and encourage residents to anonymously report those they know or suspect are dealing in illicit products. ​​
