Smoking Cessation Resources

These resources were published in August 2015

Smoking and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB&T) Communities

Evidence suggests that smoking rates are higher among lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGB&T) people than among other communities. The reasons why LGB&T people smoke may be different from the reasons why other people smoke and so the necessary motivations for stopping smoking may also be different. Some LGB&T people will feel less comfortable accessing generic smoking cessation services.

This set of resources provides support for Local Authorities and organisations serving LGB&T communities to ensure that LGB&T people receive effective smoking cessation services:

Smoking and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB&T) Communities: A guideline for Local Authority Services

Smoking and Our Communities: A focus for organisations serving the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans communities

As a supplement to the community briefing, please find resources for conducting outreach interviews below:

Guidance for Outreach Workers

Outreach Interview for Smoking Cessation with LGB&T Communities

Once you have downloaded and read these resources, we would be grateful if you would complete a very short survey about them to help inform our future work. Please click here to take the survey.
