Smoke-free play resources

poster set

Smoke-free spaces create a healthier, safer environment and mean children are less likely to smoke when they grow up


In partnership with ASH Scotland we have created new resources for smoke free spaces and to support Scotland’s Charter for a Tobacco-free Generation.

These images are available for use with activity relating to Scotland’s Charter for a Tobacco-free Generation and may be used by organisations who have signed up in support of the Charter here.

Specifically designed with early years services and primary schools in mind, these resources encourage smoke-free places for children to play, learn and socialise.

This series of fun images featuring friendly, brightly coloured, superhero and cartoon characters have been designed to encourage people to keep children’s spaces smoke-free.

These are available below in to download pdf format.

If you would like a personalised poster (e.g. incorporating your school logo) please email with details of your request.

Sign up to Scotland’s Charter for a Tobacco-free Generation and display these signs to let people know your grounds and collecting areas are smoke-free
