Assertive Outreach

Our assertive outreach engages with people who do not already know about us or who may not wish to access centre-based services. In many ways outreach is an extension of our open access work – we can provide friendly, non-judgmental advice and support on the streets, in cafes, community centres, service users’ homes, or wherever else suits the service user. Services provided include Needle and Syringe Programme, advocacy, phone calls, referrals and brief interventions.

Regional Information​
