NALOXONE ADMINISTRATION ADVICE.

This leaflet is intended for use with Naloxone packs given out to those at risk of opioid overdose and/or their representative. . Click here to view

If housing is a problem for you, it's important that you seek advice as soon as you can. If possible, please don’t wait until you’re homeless before seeking help.


We cannot give you advice directly, but we can tell you who you can.  We have a general advice section, and sections for young people and foreign nationals.

HOMELESS? NEED ADVICE?

Please remember, we provide the basic information (which was correct as of Sept 2013). To be sure that the advice you are getting is up to date and right for you, please contact the organisations listed in the advice pages.
