SMOKEFREE SPORTS 2012-13 Final Project Report.pdf - Published Version
Many children enjoy taking part in physical activity, whilst physical education, sport and play are common denominators among children worldwide. Physical activity contexts therefore provide an opportunity to deliver health promotion activity en masse in a positive, fun and healthy environment. Over the past three years SmokeFree Sports has sought to harness this potential and develop an effective and engaging mechanism to prevent and protect children from smoking.
The main purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the research findings from the final phase of the SmokeFree Sports project – a smoking prevention intervention conducted in Liverpool primary schools in the 2012-13 academic year. The report also includes a summary of the innovative practices and campaign activities that have captured the interest of children and families, teachers and schools, and the local community. Information is presented in as much detail as possible, whilst findings are reported objectively together with practical recommendations so that others can learn from our experience.
