Support to stop smoking for north east Barnsley residents


Residents in the north east of Barnsley can now access support from a dedicated stop smoking advisor to help kick the habit for good.

On Monday 16 July, Barnsley Council’s North East Area Team launched their new Smoke Free initiative, a free local service for people who live and work in Brierley, Carlton, Cudworth, Great Houghton, Grimethorpe, Lundwood, Monk Bretton, Shafton, Smithies, and Royston.

As part of this work, Yorkshire Smokefree’s Sarah Sverdloff, a dedicated stop smoking specialist, will be offering help and support through stop smoking clinics and advice sessions in the community.

Sarah said: “I’m really looking forward to working in the North East area and helping residents to kick the habit for good. There are lots of ways to change your lifestyle and become smoke free. In my weekly sessions, people will be able to access a range of advice and nicotine replacement therapy.”

Sessions will take place every week at the following locations:

Monday – Acorn Centre, Grimethorpe Library, 1pm to 4.30pm
Tuesday – Grimethorpe Family Centre, 9am to 12 noon
Tuesday – Royston Library, 1pm to 5pm
Wednesday – Royston Group Practice, 1pm to 4pm
