Poverty Alliance and ASH Scotland - Smoking and Poverty Research Discussion
When: 12.30pm-2.30pm, Thursday 25 October 2018 Where: New Volunteer House, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT This event is being organised by Poverty Alliance and ASH Scotland
Poverty Alliance and ASH Scotland are inviting community and voluntary organisations from organisations working across the Fife area to contribute to a focus group discussion on Smoking and Poverty. This work has been funded by Cancer Research UK and is looking at relationships between pro-health work (focusing on the harm caused by tobacco) and anti-poverty work. This small discussion will look to explore a range of perspectives and views around pro-health and anti-poverty work and will take a participatory approach in the discussion format.
This will involve taking part in a 1 ½ hour focus group discussion. The aims of the session are to have a stimulating and lively discussion, complete with digital voting, exploring the relationship between Poverty and Smoking and pro-health and anti-poverty work.
They will use the information you give them as part of a report. This will not identify your organisation in any way. This will help them contribute to a broader evidence base on this subject and to underpin pilot work.
For any questions relating to this discussion, please contact Fiona McHardy on [email protected] or call Fiona on 0141 353 0440.
