Flinders Island Aboriginal Association Inc. (Smokes Won't Crush Us)

 

Overview

The Flinders Island Aboriginal Association Inc (FIAAI) is an Aboriginal community controlled organisation that provides a range of primary health care, housing, aged care, and other services. FIAAI work with and for the community to achieve a self sufficient, healthy Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, promoting social, economic and cultural pride.

The FIAAI Tackling Smoking Team run a statewide Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) programme based in Launceston. The team works with schools, community groups and individuals to provide activities, resources and knowledge that can assist in achieving these goals.

As part of the TIS program, FIAAI has representatives on the Tasmanian Aboriginal Health Reference Group (TAHRG), which functions in an advisory capacity for their TIS activities.

Resources

Building on previous resources developed under the Health Lifestyle program, the FIAAI team have developed a social media campaign called Smokes Won't Crush Us. The campaign is focused on spreading the message that smoking affects the whole community, and that each person has their own story of how it has affected their life. Using these local ambassadors, FIAAI have created a series of resources as part of their campaign to promote the smoke-free message. The stories show how local ambassadors decided they wouldn’t let the smokes control their lives.
