Working Together

Over the last few days we have had learners from across Year 7 and 8 working with ASH Wales.

About ASH Wales

Our mission is to achieve a smokefree Wales by working for strong tobacco control policy. We work to raise awareness of the health, social and economic effects of smoking by working with communities, young people and partners across Wales.
We work on projects, campaigns and policy in order to achieve a reduction in, and eventual elimination of, the health problems associated with smoking and tobacco use.

Our key activities

  • We communicate the issues relating to smoking and tobacco use in Wales
  • We build effective networks of interested parties working in tobacco control in Wales
  • We provide support and advocacy to individuals and projects in the tobacco control arena, and to those who are not adequately represented in public health policy or practice
  • We lobby for public health measures to protect the health of all people in Wales from the harm caused by smoking and tobacco
  • We research and develop policy and projects in the areas of smoking and tobacco control

The feedback we received back from our visitor was great
I would like to thank you for accommodating ASH Wales over the two days.  Myself, Andrew and Khalifa really enjoyed delivering our smoking prevention workshops to all of your very well behaved young people.  The young people made the sessions; they were lively, engaging and excitable which made for a great learning environment.  Within my role over 4 years I have worked in many schools across Wales and England and I have to say the staff support provided in the sessions was fantastic.  All of the support staff, teachers and young people were a credit to the school.

What a great piece of feedback for the whole school.
