Local Activity

The Take 7 Steps Out campaign was successfully delivered across the North West of England during 2010 – 2012. Since then a number of North West local authorities have continued to deliver secondhand smoke activity using the principals and materials developed during the campaign. Since 2012 we’ve delivered Take 7 Steps Out and Chemical Soup in regions outside of the North West such as Leeds, Bradford, Wales, Isle of Wight, Leicestershire, West Berkshire and Norfolk. If you would like to know more about how we can support your locality to effectively deliver secondhand smoke activity in your area please contact us via the Contact Us page.


Norfolk County Council
In 2015 Norfolk County Council launched its Take 7 Steps Out campaign to encourage smokers to Take 7 Steps Out from their homes and cars to protect children and young people from the effects of exposure to cigarette smoke – much of which is invisible to the naked eye. The campaign has engaged with hundreds of healthcare professionals and parents using a mix of eye catching marketing materials, community events, radio and bus advertisement and training sessions designed to train healthcare professionals to deliver brief secondhand smoke interventions.
