Access to specialist services

We understand that we may not have all the specialist skills that you need.
We work with other agencies who may be able to support you if we can’t.

Naloxone training

Naloxone is a drug that can reverse the effects of opioids, such as heroin, methadone, opium, codeine, morphine, and buprenorphine. A naloxone dose can even save someone’s life if it’s used quickly after they’ve overdosed on opioids and before emergency help arrives.

The effects of naloxone don’t last very long, so it’s important to always call 999 and ask for emergency help when you use it.

We work alongside We Are With You to provide free training and kits for the families of loved ones.

Bereavement support

At a loss can connect you with specialist support in your local area.
