How we can help
The needle and syringe exchange scheme at Project 6 is a free and confidential service that provides injecting drug users free access to sterile needles, syringes and other equipment as well as safe disposal facilities.
The aim of our needle exchange service is to reduce the rates of equipment sharing amongst injecting drug users thereby preventing the risks of infection and drug-related harm amongst individuals and their communities.
We provide services for people who inject heroin, crack or amphetamine and also for those who use or are about to start using image and performance enhancing drugs such as steroids, human growth hormone and melanotan.
We provide information and advice on these substances and we can ensure that you get the right equipment and the best safer injecting advice. We can also advise on safer alternatives to injecting heroin. Additionally, naloxone kits are available which reverse the effects of overdose.
