During 2013, our success rate for prisoners stopping smoking was 63%. 

One of our specialist advisors, along with trained prison staff, provide stop smoking support to all three of the prisons in the Lancashire Care Foundation Trust footprint. They offer prisoners support in line with the general public service and will be supporting the prisons and prisoners in the lead up to prisons going smokefree in January 2015.

“I never thought it would be possible to quit while in prison.I have wanted to for a number of years but with talk of smoking ban,this has made me more determined to do this on my own without being pressured.I am now enjoying my cell being smoke free and people respect me for quitting”
