National Centre of Indigenous Excellence Ltd. (Talking About Tobacco Use)



The National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE) builds capabilities and creates opportunities by delivering programs and promoting progressive leadership through its enterprises and facilities.

As one of the 37 Tackling Indigenous Smoking funded organisations, NCIE works with a number of Sydney Inner city suburbs including Redfern, Waterloo, La Perouse, Glebe, Randwick and Marrickville to implement their existing Talking About Tobacco Use (TATU) program.

TATU focuses on talking about tobacco use and raising the level of community knowledge about the health, financial and social impacts of smoking. The program does this through a number of activities including:


As part of the previous TATU program, NCIE has developed a number of posters, videos and other resources. A key focus of TATU has been to identify community Ambassadors who currently smoke, and to assist them in their individual quit journey in order to influence those who look up to them. Their tobacco journey has been captured through a digital story and shared amongst their own and other communities at events and via social media.
