Illegal tobacco campaign 2020

Stamp IT Out London 2020 is a collaborative campaign designed to raise awareness of the harms and risks of illegal tobacco and why it’s important to report premises that sell it.

This year will be media driven via press releases, social media, newsletters, staff bulletins, and other communication channels. Unfortunately our usual public health and trading standards teams roadshows to engage staff and residents won’t be taking place.

Key messages have also been updated to include references to the COVID-19 pandemic and why this issue remains a relevant concern.

London Councils – working with London Trading Standards, ADPH London, the Mayor of London and PHE (London) Alcohol, Drugs and Tobacco Team – has prepared a variety of resources to help support the campaign.

What do you think?

Please complete our Stamp IT Out online survey which has been designed to measure people’s awareness of and attitudes towards illegal tobacco and capture intelligence on premises that sell it. Your responses will help shape future enforcement and advice activities.
