ASH Wales

ASH Wales is the leading organisation working towards a smokefree Wales. We are behavioural change experts and have been delivering stop smoking services to vulnerable groups for years. Our youth service, The Filter, is the only one of its kind in the UK and has worked with over 6,000 young people since 2013.

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to achieve a smokefree Wales by working for strong tobacco control policy. We work to raise awareness of the health, social and economic effects of smoking by working with communities, young people and partners across Wales.

    We work on projects, campaigns and policy in order to achieve a reduction in, and eventual elimination of, the health problems associated with smoking and tobacco use.

    We communicate the issues relating to smoking and tobacco use in Wales.

    We build effective networks of interested parties working in tobacco control in Wales.

    We provide support and advocacy to individuals and projects in the tobacco control arena, and to those who are not adequately represented in public health policy or practice.

    We lobby for public health measures to protect the health of all people in Wales from the harm caused by smoking and tobacco.

    We research and develop policy and projects in the areas of smoking and tobacco control.

    We’re experienced and knowledgeable about tobacco control and smoking issues, and we’re happy to share our experience with others.

    We are involved in a wide range of activities including coordinating professional networks to bring together people in Wales working in tobacco control.
