Cancer and chronic illness don’t discriminate, they cross cultural and language barriers – and so do we. We help smokers from all types of cultures and language groups to quit.
Victoria is one of the most culturally diverse states in Australia and Quit engages with a range of multicultural community groups, ESL schools, welfare, health and educational service providers and the ethnic media, to help people from all cultures and languages quit smoking.
Quit resources and relationships help us to reach diverse groups, in ways designed to make our messages meaningful and relevant.
What can you do:
- Free multilingual information sessions ‘Quit Smoking: Breathe Well’: available for community groups from non-English speaking backgrounds and adult migrants and refugees learning English as a second language.
- A variety of Quit resources in a range of languages. Search our multicultural resources .
- Quitline 13 7848 – a confidential telephone service – provides information, support and advice for people trying to stop smoking. A telephone interpreter service (TIS) is available and can be arranged for Quitline callers from a non-English speaking background.
