AVCA is a charitable trust board, we are a non-profit organization in the community - educating and advocating for tobacco harm reduction.
AVCA is truly a grassroots organization and our success depends completely on community involvement and support. If you currently use smokeless alternatives to combustible tobacco, our goal is to ensure that these reduced harm alternatives become and remain available, affordable and effective.
Funding is utilised solely for the running of the charity, there are no salaries paid (all board members are volunteers) so all the money donated goes back into the community via our advocacy and outreach programs in the community.

More about us
AVCA - we educate the public and any interested party regarding e-cigarettes - what we do, why we do it and how to best utilise them to switch from combustible tobacco. Our mission is to Inform, Educate and Advocate for Tobacco Harm Reduction.
Our most recent efforts have been geared towards mentoring smokers towards vaping and providing information, education and assistance to smoking cessation providers countrywide, free of charge. We have also provided the government with scientific information, peer reviewed research and links to experts and recent, objective information on e-cigarettes and vaping.
Information is key. Knowledge is power. We are about empowering people to make choices based on recent, scientific information combined with the anecdotal experiences of those who have successfully made the switch from combustible tobacco to e-cigarettes.
