Our vision for a better world

We are an independent charity working towards a safer system of legal regulation for all drugs. When we legalise and regulate drugs that are currently illegal we can take the power away from organised crime and establish safety controls.

At Transform, we educate the public and policymakers on effective drug policy; we develop and promote viable alternatives to prohibition; we provide a voice for those directly affected by drug policy failures; and we support policymakers and practitioners in achieving positive change.

In addition to our long-term goal, we work actively to support pragmatic changes to drug policy that can save lives today. These include police diversion schemes, overdose prevention centres and drug checking.

We work internationally with civil society, governments, and multilateral agencies to develop drug policies and laws that support public health, security and sustainable development goals.

Current drug policy harms people across society. Through our Anyone's Child campaign, we provide opportunities for people with personal experiences of drug policy failures to be heard.

We have formed an Allyship together with the social action network Blaksox. This Allyship seeks to ensure that Black people and communities have their voices and experiences inform the debate as we move towards drug law reform in the UK.

Why we don't work with industry

We value our independence, and we make a determined effort to avoid conflicts of interest. We do not represent any stakeholders in the drug policy landscape, beyond the individuals and communities who are directly affected by drug policy failures. For this reason, we have clear guidelines on how we manage relationships with industries that stand to make profit from drug markets of any kind and do not accept money from these industries.
