What they aim to achieve

“Creating smoke-free homes IN Salford.”

The Smoke-Free Homes service aims to reduce the harm caused by second-hand smoke by encouraging smoke-free environments at home, by:

  • reducing exposure of people, with particular regard to specified groups, to second-hand smoke
  • raising awareness of the consequences of exposure to second-hand smoke


  • Second-hand smoke has multiple, significant negative effects on people’s health.
  • People are more likely to become or remain smokers if others in their household or their peers smoke.
  • Keeping either a part of, or an entire home smoke-free will reduce the effects of second-hand smoke on people’s health, and may support smokers to stop smoking

What they do

  • Outreach work to raise awareness of the risks of exposure to second-hand smoke and the benefits of being smoke-free
  • Provide support to applicants for Smoke-Free Home promises
