Information/advice on smoking

Passive smoking is especially harmful for children as they have less well-developed airways, lungs and immune systems.

It’s estimated that more than one in five children in the UK live in a household where at least one person smokes and, as a result, they’re more likely to develop:

  • asthma
  • chest infections – like pneumonia and bronchitis
  • meningitis
  • ear infections
  • coughs and colds

What to do:

  • always smoke outside
  • ask your visitors to smoke outside
  • don’t smoke in the car or allow anyone else to
