Stopping smoking is one of the best things you will ever do for your health. When you stop, you give your lungs the chance to repair and you will be able to breathe easier. There are lots of other benefits too – and they start almost immediately.
As well as improving your health, quitting smoking also reduces your fire risk. Smoking is one of the most common causes of fire fatalities and the best way to stay safe is to stop smoking. Please refer to this Smoking Cessation Leaflet for further advice.
It's never too late to quit!
Walk and Talk Police Initiative
The Walk and Talk initiative has been launched in response to listening to women and girls in our communities who tell us that they do not feel safe on our streets and open spaces. This is an opportunity for men and women to join their local police officers for a walk around their area and point out their concerns first hand. The issues raised will be addressed jointly with our partners to make women feel safer in their communities.
Please assist with promoting this within your organisations and the wider community by displaying this poster in a prominent place.
A Carers Guide to Home Fire Safety ‘, the video resource developed by the Care, Health and Safeguarding team, has now launched and is live on the London Fire Brigade website.
The video can be found here:
Are you in touch with a family where someone has an illness or disability, be it a physical, mental health or perhaps a substance mis-use issue? If so, then someone in that household is likely to have a caring role – and is therefore an (unpaid) Carer. That Carer could be an adult or a child (‘Young Carer’).
Please help these families connect with the Carers Centre. The information, advice, practical and emotional support that they provide helps Carers stay safe and well whilst they are caring for others – and also acts as a factor in ensuring that the people they care for stay safe, too. For more information, please visit their website: www.suttoncarerscentre.org.
