A Nationwide Epidemic

Vaping is a major issue for our teachers, parents and students. It is affecting the health, attainment, behaviour and development of our children.  

Sensors are proving effective in schools to tackle and reduce vaping, but more needs to be done to stop us creating a new generation of addicts. 

Vape Guardian is committed to supporting schools, but without tighter regulations that reduce the attractiveness of vaping, this popularity pandemic will continue to rise.   

We are collaborating with the health and education sector to ensure regulations go further to protect children from taking up vaping in the first place, as well as explore better guidance to support schools in reducing the problem.
