The London Tobacco Alliance
Nearly one million Londoners smoke, 11.5% of the capital’s population. Two in three people who smoke will die from smoking and smoking is the primary reason for the gap in life expectancy between those in the most deprived quintile and those in the least deprived quintile.
The London Tobacco Alliance has been created to combat the effects of this life-threatening addiction and achieve reduced smoking rates across London. Launched on the 26th October 2022, this collaborative first of a kind for London includes partners and stakeholders with an interest in making London smokefree.
The London Tobacco Alliance leads the regional approach to smoking cessation for London, facilitated by ADPH London.
Stop Smoking London is the delivery arm of the London Tobacco Alliance.
Through its website, text message service and telephone helpline, this digital programme delivers participating boroughs continued economies of scale through collaborative commissioning of a mass public advertising campaigns alongside digital and remote (e.g. telephone, text, email) Stop Smoking London services as well as signposting smokers to available, local face-to-face tobacco dependence services.

Stop Smoking London
Stop Smoking London is the public facing identity of the London Tobacco Alliance. Stop Smoking London has an ambition to use its profile to raise public awareness of the benefits of quitting and act as the entry point into accessible local and regional support.
Stop Smoking London Website
The Stop Smoking London website includes an improved directory of London borough Stop Smoking Services to ensure a timely and clear pathway into existing local stop smoking support available in London.
The website also includes access to information, tools, support for London smokers considering their quit journey and includes the option to request a call back from a specialist smoking health advisor. For participating boroughs with existing provision to handle these calls the call back is sent directly to the local stop smoking service for follow up. In cases where the provision is not available locally, the call back request and further support is handled by the specialist smoking cessation advisors on the Stop Smoking London helpline.
