How we can help

two hands icon

We have a friendly open-access approach. This means you can walk into our service and get support. To make that first visit a little easier, you'll be greeted by a Peer Mentor. They've been through treatment with us, so they can give you first-hand advice. They'll be able to explain more to you about how the service can help you.

Find a pharmacy

Pop your postcode in below to find your local pharmacy for naloxone and needle exchange.

At our hubs, you can pick up a SLAM pack. They are safer chemsex packs that are made up of equipment to help reduce the transmission of blood borne infections like HIV and Hepatitis C. They also have information on keeping yourself safe and other helpful info.
