Smokefree 2030


In July 2019, the UK Government set out its ambition for England to be smokefree by 2030. Government guidelines say the next steps should have been announced by 6th January 2020, but it has yet to do so. ASH, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Royal College of Physicians, the British Medical Association, the British Lung Foundation, the Royal Society for Public Health and many others are calling on the Government to adopt our Roadmap to a Smokefree 2030.

Top of the list is legislation to require the tobacco manufacturers to finance a Smokefree 2030 Fund, to pay for the measures needed to end smoking.

We can make smoking history by 2030

The clock is ticking – every day in England 280 children start smoking. That’s

since the UK Government announced its ambition for England to be smokefree by 2030.

The Government must act if this ambition is to be delivered.
