Smoking and Dementia Awareness Project

A 6-months project to raise awareness of the link between smoking and dementia.

Smoking and Dementia Awareness Project is funded by the Public Health England to increase awareness of the link between smoking and dementia, increase take up of services to stop smoking, and decrease the prevalence of smoking amongst the Chinese population in England.

At the end of project, a briefing that details how stop smoking services can best engage with Chinese communities will be written.

Smokers are up to 70% more likely to develop dementia than those who do not smoke. The project published a leaflet with both simplified and traditional Chinese version to raise awareness.
