The Smoke-Free Homes Network is a collaboration of researchers, healthcare practitioners and third sector partners in Scotland working to find innovative ways to reduce exposure to second-hand smoke in homes.

Scotland leads the way in quantifying SHS in homes with new measurement equipment and has considerable expertise in designing interventions to empower parents to make their homes smoke-free. And some of the largest datasets on household SHS concentrations are currently being generated from research work here.
