Injecting Advice

Harm Reduction Cafes

Guest writer Jon Derricott. Written on . Posted in .

This presentation was delivered to the National Needle Exchange Forum meeting in Bournemouth. I was talking about the Harm Reduction Cafe community project that I’ve developed as part of my job with HIT.

Update: The Harm Reduction Cafe website is now closed, it may be back but that depends on how much spare time I can find.

Jon is a film maker with a really good understanding of health and social issues. His previous work with Exchange Supplies and work in nursing has given him the ability to connect quickly and meaningfully with a wide range of social groups. He particularly enjoys working non-exploitively with groups that are traditionally stigmatised and marginalised.
