Local alliances - tobacco control


Local Alliances was a series of case studies carried out in collaboration with ASH Scotland.

This study is based on interviews with 28 people in Scotland who have been involved in developing local tobacco control alliances. It covers six areas of alliance development and identifies lessons learned. The six areas are:

  • catalysts in forming an alliance
  • recruitment of alliance partners
  • engaging wider partners
  • joint action plans and how they are progressed
  • sharing resources with partners
  • the benefits of being an alliance member.

In addition to assisting those involved in developing tobacco control alliances this study may be useful to a wider audience working in other health related behaviour change areas and community development.
