Voluntary organisations stop smoking project

The  Kick-it Stop Smoking service is engaging voluntary and community organisations in the tri-borough area to help people to give up smoking. They have asked Kensington and Chelsea Social Council to help facilitate this.

In August 2016, for the second year in a row, grants of between £500 - £5000 were made available for voluntary and community organisations serving residents of Kensington & Chelsea, Westminster and Hammersmith and Fulham.
Applications were for projects that supported people to stop smoking and raise awareness of the harmful effects of smoking. Organisations applied to deliver one or both of the following:

  • Give advice to residents to help them to successfully stop smoking
  • Hold educational campaigns and activities to increase awareness about the harmful effects of smoking

11 voluntary organisations applied for the grants and 5 organisations were successful in gaining a contract;

  • The Abbey Community Association
  • Anti-Tribalism Movement
  • Chinese Information and Advice Centre
  • MSH Health & Wellbeing
  • Iranian Association
