Young People Assist in Consultation

Healthy n Happy have been working in partnership with young people, shopkeepers and the community in general to find out what people think about smoking and tobacco use in our community. Through this research we hope to find out where and how tobacco products are accessed by young people and what the thoughts and opinions on smoking and tobacco use by young people are.

We worked alongside 23 young people who were keen to be involved in the development of the questionnaire and to go out and ask their peers, neighbours, group users, organisations and shopkeepers of their opinions.

We have just concluded the face to face surveys and will now be collating all the opinions which will form a report.  This will be shared with the wider community as soon as possible and we are delighted with the wide range of opinions from the community.
