In 2016 Public Health England spent £33,700 on tobacco prevention education as part of its Rise Above online marketing campaign. The campaign aims to prevent or delay the uptake by 11-16 year-olds of risky behaviours including smoking, drinking alcohol, drugs and sexual relationships.

Some local authorities use funding from the public health grant to undertake smoking prevention and education activities in their communities.
