Tackling Tobacco is a step-by-step program which aims to reduce smoking-related harm among priority populations which experience high levels of social and economic disadvantage.

Through Tackling Tobacco, Cancer Council helps organisations address smoking, and support people who access their services and their staff to quit.

The program is free to join and works by delivering training for staff and volunteers, providing a dedicated Cancer Council representative for 12 months, offering financial grants based on need, sharing resources and facilitating monthly steering group meetings.

To express your interest in joining the program, email [email protected], call 9334 1911 by Thursday, June 30. Alternatively, organisations can complete the Expression of Interest form.
