    Councils in England will share a Department of Health grant of £2.5 million to help smokers quit.

    Following negotiations by the Local Government Association, the 25 local authority areas with the highest numbers of smokers will each get grants of £100,000 specifically to help tackle smoking. This new funding will help councils improve the health of those who need it most by encouraging smokers to quit and discourage young people from taking up smoking.
