Here at Transform we believe passionately in the need for an end to the war on drugs. However, while our long-term goal is the replacement of prohibition with a system of legal regulation, we are also committed to supporting innovations within the current system that save lives.
That is why we have committed much of our energy to working with policymakers and practitioners who are engaged in changes on the ground that reduce drug harms.
We work with local health teams, police commissioners, treatment providers, elected representatives and universities to develop innovative approaches and share good practice.
We believe that changes such as these are essential to alleviating the suffering felt by individual, families and communities here and now. We are proud to have worked with passionate, forward-thinking individuals and organisations across the country to help make these reforms a reality.
Transform works locally and regionally to promote innovative approaches to reducing drug harms. These include helping to establish Overdose Prevention Centres, police Diversion Schemes; Heroin Assisted Treatment, and Drug Safety Testing at festivals, night-time venues and city centre locations.
