Launch of Not Around Us - Project initiated by Healthy Galway City and Galway CYPSC
Date added
Added: Tuesday, April 13, 2021

Not Around Us is about promoting an environment where it is easier for those who smoke to quit, and stay quit, and to help de-normalise smoking for the next generation. Watch the launch video to learn more about this initiative. 

The purpose of Not Around Us is to:

1.       Help protect children and young people from second-hand smoke exposure.

2.       Contribute to the denormalisation of smoking for children and young people.

3.       Reduce environmental nuisance, cost of cleaning and damage that discarded tobacco products create.

4.       Signpost to HSE QUIT services.

Not Around Us signage will be made available free of charge to interested not for profit groups or organisations, schools, and early years services in Galway. Interested services and organisations should go to to get more information and to download the Expression of Interest form. Information leaflets will also be provided to help participating organisations communicate the Not Around Us message with those visiting their building.
