The way you get support from us might be different for a while, but we are still here. We’ll do everything we can to help you stay safe. Things are changing quickly, so keep checking this page, our Twitter and our national Coronavirus information pages for updates. 

You can contact us on 01212 275890 or email [email protected].

If your keyworker isn’t available to speak to you, please give us a call on the main service number. We’re answering calls between 09:00 and 17:00. If you ring outside of those hours, please leave a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Updates to the service:

  • Our service is running, but we're doing appointments over the phone for now. 
  • We are still taking new referrals
  • Needle Exchange and Naloxone is available from all our hubs during open access hours: Mon, Tue, Thurs & Fri 10:00 - 12:00 and 14:00 - 16:00; and Wed 14:00 - 16:00.
  • To help you stay safe, we are changing the way we prescribe medication for a while. Please take a look at our prescriptions info page to see what’s happening. If you have any questions about this, give us a call. 
  • You can find more support and info on our alcohol advice page.  
  • Our groups won’t be running as usual for a while but we are starting to develop some online resources to support group work – please call the service for details.
