Northside Partnership: Stop Smoking Programme

The Stop Smoking Programme offers support to people who wish to quit smoking in the areas where we work. We deliver this programme in partnership with the Health Services Executive.

We know from national surveys that up to 75% of smokers would like to quit for good. We also know that smokers are up to four times more likely to quit successfully with help. Our Lay Health Advocates, can offer free and friendly support and advice to help you take the first steps to quit for good.

How does it work?

The Stop Smoking Programme offers a combination of one to one and group support to individuals who wish to quit smoking. All supports are delivered by trained Lay Health Advocates and are completely free of charge.

In a one-to-one session, our advisors will:

  • look at your desire and readiness to quit
  • take a history of your smoking habit
  • assess your nicotine addiction
  • identify your reasons for quitting and any difficulties or risks of relapse
  • create a personal plan to help you quit smoking
  • measure your carbon monoxide levels

Who can take part?

You can take part in the programme if:

  • You are over 17 years of age
  • You want to quit smoking
  • You live in an area where we work.

People can refer themselves to the programme. We also take referrals from hospitals, health professionals and community organsiations working in the area.

Smoke Free Homes Challenge

Northside Partnership’s Stop Smoking Programme is calling on people living in Dublin 3, 5, 13 and 17 to join the Smoke Free Homes Challenge for 2017.

Smoke Free Homes aims to reduce exposure to second hand smoke in the home whilst raising awareness of passive smoking and the health risks, especially to children and young people.

Once registered, participants receive a Smoke Free Home Pack and sign a promise document where they commit to keeping their home smoke free for four weeks. During this time, the home may receive a random inspection to ensure the promise is being kept. At the end of the four-week challenge, participants receive a Smoke Free Home Certificate.

This programme will be running from May until September of 2017. Call our Smoking Cessation Team at 085 8478960 or 085 8478961 for more information.
