alert icon Coronavirus info

Last updated: 15 April 2020

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. If you're worried about something, please get in touch.

You can contact us on 0161 474 1343 or email us on [email protected].

Updates to the service:

  • While our hub is open 9:00 - 14:30 on weekdays, we are trying to limit the number of people coming in. We’ll do your appointment over the phone or on Skype instead.
  • If you need to make a referral, we are here to support you into treatment. Please get in touch with us.
  • We're sorry to say that our groups aren't going to be running for a while. You can access Breaking Free Online (call the service for an access code if you don’t already have a login) and find online groups and support options on our coronavirus info page.  
  • Our needle exchange is open from 9:45 - 14:15 on Monday to Friday. You can also get naloxone and sharps boxes.
  • We are offering needle exchange deliveries daily from 15:00 - 17:00. Give us a ring if you'd like us to deliver to you.

You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more updates.

Find the latest information on coronavirus on our information pages or the NHS website.

How we can help

This is for people who have reached their chosen goals and want ongoing support. We'll encourage you to be vocal about what you want from us, and we'll work with you to figure out what you want to achieve.
