ASH and Breathe 2025 have created a communications toolkit ahead of No Smoking Day 2021, which takes place on Wednesday 10 March. This year’s theme is “quitting smoking doesn’t have to be stressful” and centres around the evidence that quitting smoking is associated with improved mental health.
The toolkit includes:
- Information about the campaign
- Aims and key messages
- Downloadable assets to support local promotion
- Templates for social media, emails, websites and local PR
You can also watch a recording of a webinar about No Smoking Day 2021 and this year’s campaign at the link above.
About No Smoking Day
No Smoking Day is a national campaign that encourages the nation’s smokers to make a quit attempt on the second Wednesday of March each year. No Smoking Day is an important opportunity to engage smokers in your local communities, encouraging them to quit and access local stop smoking support.
This campaign has been developed collaboratively between ASH and Breathe 2025 with support from PHE Marketing, Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership and Fresh North East.
The new resources prompt smokers to search ‘smokefree’, which takes them to the NHS Better Health Website. Here they will find a range of information and support on quitting, including several free tools including the Smokefree App, SMS and email support and the local stop smoking service search facility.
