We are a multidisciplinary team of experts seeking to understand how to support people to create a smoke-free home.

SHINE is an ESRC/IRC funded network of researchers, policy and practice professionals in the UK and ROI.

The University of Stirling and University College Dublin (UCD) are leading a new network of researchers, third sector groups and policy partners with a view to informing the development of future interventions and support mechanisms to help reduce smoking in the home.

Given the widespread awareness of the health risks of smoking and second-hand smoke, particularly to pregnant women, babies and children, we want to understand how best to support smokers to create a smoke-free home.

Inaugural funding for the SHINE network was awarded to Dr Rachel O’Donnell and Dr Kate Frazer, by the Economic and Social Research Council, and the Irish Research Council, from March 2021-February 2022.
