Wales Tobacco Control Alliance
The Wales Tobacco Control Alliance (WTCA) is managed by Action on Smoking and Health Wales to enable all third sector and professional organisations involved with tackling tobacco in Wales to inform and influence policy development and implementation, at both a UK and Wales level.
The principles of the WTCA are:
- WTCA membership will reflect the wide range of third sector and professional body organisations and disciplines concerned with the impact of tobacco on Wales and its people.
- The WTCA will endeavour to address tobacco inequalities in all its activities.
- The WTCA will be an inclusive, participatory body that encourages active engagement of its members.
- The WTCA will be transparent and accessible, and will consult with its member organisation on proposed actions.
Who can join?
Membership is open to all third sector and professional body organisations in Wales whose remit includes a tobacco control focus or who work with those vulnerable to tobacco.
All member organisations are required to declare that they do not have connections, affiliations or holdings with the tobacco industry or its representatives. Individuals are not eligible to join the WTCA. Organisations must ensure delegates to the WTCA are sufficiently senior and knowledgable to vote on coordinated policy initiatives of the WTCA.
The WTCA will meet at least three times a year.
Action on Smoking and Health Wales will provide a member of staff whose responsibility is to co-ordinate the work of the WTCA.
The WTCA is a milestone development in tackling tobacco. Together we can meet the challenge that tobacco presents to Wales and its people.
