Tackling Smoking & Healthy Lifestyle Program

The Tackling Smoking & Healthy Lifestyle (TS&HL) Program is a promotion based program funded by the Department of health as part of the Closing The Gap initiative.         

The main focus of the TS&HL Program is to promote Healthy Lifestyle choices for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people in order to assist with Stamping Out Chronic Disease in our communities. The TS&HL Program has three teams that cover the Central West, Far West & New England Regions of NSW. The TS&HL teams work in partnership with health service providers across three regions as well as, Department of Education, Cancer Council NSW, and local Aboriginal Community based organisations and programs.

We offer a referral system to ensure health care needs are followed up with appropriate service providers. TS&HL program have a smoking specific referral system in partnership with Quitline.

The TS&HL team also offer school workshop sessions to promote Healthy Lifestyle practices within our schools and aim to educate children about the negative effects of Tobacco Smoke.
