Advice and support

If you need it, we can arrange a detox for you. This might be something you can complete in the community, but if not we can arrange rehab placements for you.



At our needle exchange, you can get access to clean injecting equipment. You can also get advice on safer injecting and harm reduction.

Education, training and employment

Whether you are ready for work or not, we can support you. We'll help you develop the tools you'll need to enter employment, training, volunteering or education.

Your first visit

When you arrive at the service, a friendly member of our team will be there to greet you. At reception they'll take some details from you and ask you to complete a referral form. If you want to ask more questions, you can speak to a member of our engagement team.
