We are delighted to announce the opening of our new town centre stop smoking venue, which will replace our current location on Eldon Street.
Last week our adviser Emma set up a health promotion stand at Ellis Primary School in Hemingfield. It was a very windy day meaning Emma had the difficult task of securing our posters and leaflets - but a success overall!
For the past 35 years Robert has felt like his life revolved around smoking. As the only member of his family and friends with the addiction, most people were encouraging him to stop. However, as he was used to having the habit in his life Robert resisted for a long time.
Yorkshire Smokefree has teamed up with Barnsley Football Club to help smokers in the area kick the habit.
Yorkshire Smokefree, is supporting an initiative in Barnsley which aims to promote a ‘smoke-free generation’ in the borough. Yorkshire Smokefree in Barnsley, along with other local organisations, came together at an event hosted by Barnsley Council’s public health service to share their views on what they can do to reduce the effects of smoking in the area.
Yorkshire Smokefree is a proud supporter of Ambition Barnsley. Held at Barnsley College the aim of Ambition Barnsley is to highlight the post 16 progression pathways available to young people in school years 9, 10 and 11. Ambition Barnsley will help young people find out more about life after year 11 and the pathways available to them in Barnsley and surrounding areas. They will be able to find out about apprenticeships, vocational courses and foundation learning,A levels, employment, volunteering and enterprise.
