The Needle Syringe Program operates out of the Frances Hewett Community Centre.  It aims at minimising the spread of HIV, Hep B and C and other blood born viruses.  Needles and syringes are provided free of charge to injecting drug users.

 

A 24 hour disposal bin is available on site and provides for safe and accessible means of needle and syringe disposal. 

 

The Service is offered in a comfortable and non-judgemental environment with information available on a variety of harm minimisation strategies.
