About

New posters, a booklet and an animation, co-designed by service users from Bristol Drugs Project, will be on display at the Station, Silver Street from 8-31 January. The materials promote the benefits of low dead space injecting equipment for people who inject drugs, alongside broader harm reduction messages.

Low dead space equipment has less space between the needle and the plunger after injecting. Blood and drug remain in this space, so if equipment is shared the risk of spreading blood borne viruses such as HIV and Hepatitis C is higher when there’s more space for blood to be left in the equipment.

The materials will be launched at a special event on 24 January at the Kitchen, the Station, Silver Street, Bristol BS1 2AG. At the event the animation will have its premier, there will be an opportunity to hear from those involved in the project, including the service users themselves, alongside an exhibition of the materials.
