Film highlights dangers of smoking to local school children

Have your say

A series of educational films using children to teach their peers about the negative impact that smoking has on health and the social issues it raises have been uploaded to a local NHS website.

The collection of five films, created by Leicestershire County Council, uses primary school age children to explain the health dangers and social issues around smoking. The films are now available to view at Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust‘s Health for Kids website at

Children can learn about why smoking is dangerous for their health, what to do if their friends put pressure on them to try smoking, as well as other wider issues.
