They can get health prevention supplies (condoms, lubricants) on a daily basis, and cleaning supplies and underwear on a weekly basis.

Qualified and motivated staff are available at all times to ensure comprehensive follow-up care for users of the service.

The staff are particularly dedicated to their role as objective listeners and provide a non- judgmental welcome to everyone who uses the facility.

The staff includes :

Our medical staff is on duty every Wednesday from 8-10pm. A team of doctors ensures the surgery is always open at that time.

Twice a week, the drop-In team goes out onto the streets to meet directly with sex workers to give them information, condoms, lubricants and, in winter, hot coffee.

The drop-In dispensary is 100% registered for its basic operations.
