Smoke Free Generation |

The Smoke Free Generation - Be a Part of it! website is a collaboration of service providers who want to protect young Tasmanians from the harmful effects of tobacco use. The site details the range of options that young Tasmanian's can use or access to become smoke free. It also includes information and resources to ensure adults, particularly teachers and youth workers are aware of their role in ensuring a smoke free generation. This includes preventing or delaying smoking uptake, encouraging and assisting young smokers to reduce or quit smoking and to create and support smoke free and healthy environments.

This site is for those working in schools, communities and other youth settings who would like information and resources to help prevent young people from starting to smoke.

Guide for youth workers

The Tasmanian Department of Health and Human Services has developed a guide for youth workers and youth service managers. This guide was developed with the support from members of the Smoke-Free Young People Working Group established under the Tasmanian Tobacco Control Coalition. This guide is designed to help youth workers extend their skills, knowledge and practice in dealing with the tobacco issue of the young people they support.
