Sheffield Smokefree Playgrounds Consultation

Sheffield City Council are committed to reducing smoking prevalence in the city. As part of this commitment we are proposing to make all Sheffield Playgrounds Smokefree.

What is a Smokefree playground?

A Smokefree playground is an outdoor space where no-one smokes or uses an e-cigarette in the playground area.

Why Smokefree playgrounds?

Evidence tells us that children are less likely to start smoking if they do not view the activity as a normal part of everyday life. Three out of four children are aware of cigarettes before they reach the age of five, irrespective of whether or not the parents smoke.

The aim of Smokefree Playgrounds is:

· To reduce the number of children and young people who start smoking

· To decrease cigarette litter and make playgrounds nice places to be

· To reduce children and young people’s exposure to smoking and second-hand

You may be aware that the Local Sustainability Fund launched late last week. This is a 1 year £20m non lottery programme aimed at making medium sized (£100K to £1.5M) VCSE organisations stronger, more sustainable and more resilient. It’s about looking at organisations rather than beneficiaries; making the organisation healthier, so it can continue to help its beneficiaries in the longer term.

Part of the application process is that organisations interested in funding have to complete an online diagnostic tool – the VCSE diagnostic tool. The tool effectively analgises key organisational information such as:

· Financials

· People in the organisation

· Services provided

· Customers and competitors

· Organisational capacity and skills etc

Once this is input, the system returns a summary of the applicants strengths and sustainability, a guide to the areas it should seek to improve, and a 14-point sustainability feedback report. The tool takes about an…
