Local authorities are at the frontline of national efforts to achieve the goal of Smokefree 2030. This short guide has been published to support members and officers in local authorities and their partners in the NHS and civil society to sustain and renew their commitment to this goal.

The guide identifies ten ways in which local authorities can continue to drive down smoking prevalence in their communities and reduce the many health, social and economic costs of smoking. It offers ideas and suggestions that may be useful in drawing up a local tobacco control strategy, complementing the more comprehensive approach offered by The End of Smoking strategic guidance.
