Tobacco and Young People
We are committed to helping create an environment where future generations of young people choose not to smoke. The Tobacco and Young People initiative delivers a tobacco prevention programme to pupils in primary 5, 6 and 7 with the aim of achieving this goal.
We work with schools in Govan, Gorbals, Priesthill and Househillwood, delivering practical sessions including basic football skills and fun games as well as interactive educational workshops around smoking. The programme culminates with a special event at Rangers exclusive training ground, Murray Park.
This programme has delivered a number of positive outcomes, including increased participation in physical activity and increased knowledge amongst the young people involved on the dangers of smoking.
We are grateful to NHS Health Improvement South Sector (Glasgow) for their funding support for this programme.
