The Wandsworth Tobacco Control Alliance
The council have formed a Tobacco Control Strategy and drawn up a five year strategy. The Alliance will report to the Health and Wellbeing Board.
The objectives of the Alliance are to:
- Reduce the negative impact of tobacco use on the lives of the people in the borough
- By reducing tobacco use, reduce health inequality in the borough
- By reducing tobacco use, deliver savings of nearly £11million per annum to the local economy.
It will do this by implementing legislation to ban cigarette vending machines and tobacco displays, work with customs to tackle illicit tobacco and encourage smokers to change their behaviour.
