Invitation to participate in research about vaping

Kent County Council would like to conduct research with Kent children aged 11 to 18 about their attitudes to vaping, influences and their behaviours.

Schools, colleges and other settings that are selected to participate in the research will receive a donation to a good cause chosen by your school, college or setting.

Please complete this short form to register your interest in participating in this research:

Please complete this invitation form by the end of February.

The proposed research will be a survey conducted in April and May 2024. The plan is to repeat the survey in 2025 after the government’s proposed ban on disposable vapes has been introduced to measure and understand changes in attitudes, influences, behaviours and supply sources over time. The research findings will be used to inform KCC public health strategy and plan future communication campaigns.

For more information about the specifics of the research approach and to register your interest, please complete the short form above.

If you have any questions or concerns about this research or would like more information, please contact Rutuja Kulkarni-Johnston, Consultant in Public Health, KCC, by emailing
