We’re extremely proud of our Calderdale team for being commended in the 2015 The Advisor magazine awards for their hard efforts in helping people in the local area quit smoking.
The award was received based on the team’s involvement with the innovative FPN (Fixed Penalty Notice) scheme, a partnership initiative between SWYFT, and Calderdale Council’s Public Health and Environmental Health Departments, which wouldn’t have been possible without collaboration. Anyone in Calderdale who is caught dropping a cigarette on the floor is offered the option to pay a fine upfront or head to Calderdale Smokefree to cut out the habit for good. If the quitter is able to stay smoke-free for at least 4 weeks with our help, they no longer have to pay the fine - another great motivation to quit.
Fantastic work from everyone involved at Calderdale.
