Our harm reduction workshops cover a wide range of topics and aim to address the consequences of risk-taking behaviours. We don’t condemn or condone, it’s a non-judgemental, research-based, informal and participatory approach to health education in the community.

The topics we cover are:

Each workshop is tailored to the individual needs of your group and is delivered in a participatory way to ensure that all young people involved take something away from the session.

Our workshops on average last about an hour and a half. However, we are happy to adapt the duration if appropriate.

If one or more of the above topics are of interest to you and your group, continue reading below for more information on the content of individual workshops.
