Communications toolkit

For professionals

This toolkit supports local campaign activity for No Smoking Day 2023. This year’s theme is: “Stopping smoking improves your brain health”. We’re working with Alzheimer’s Research UK whose research shows dementia is the most feared health condition for people over the age of 55 – more than any other life-threatening disease including cancer and diabetes. Only 18% of smokers know that smoking causes dementia, compared to over 70% who know that smoking causes lung diseases and cancers.

This toolkit is designed to support activity on and around No Smoking Day, with partners encouraged to extend their communications activity in the month that follows, to expand its impact on smokers.
