Connecting: A Guide to Using Harm Reduction Supplies as Engagement Tools

Download Connecting: A Guide to Using Harm Reduction Supplies as Engagement Tools

Harm reduction supplies are an important tool to build relationships and support interactions between clients and staff. This resource has been developed for frontline harm reduction workers, based on focus group consultations across the province and the Best Practice Recommendations for Canadian Harm Reduction Programs (which you can find here).

We hope this Guide supports the incredible and ongoing efforts of frontline harm reduction workers who continue to evolve programs and services in their communities and look forward to hearing how this resource is being used in your harm reduction program.

You can download the full Guide here as well as client-facing awareness posters below.
