Mapping chemsex services in Greater London

MENRUS.CO.UK - part of the Gay Men's Health Collective (GMHC) - is carrying out this survey to get a better understanding of chemsex support provision in Greater London, and whether LGBT+ people are accessing mainstream drug services.

From August 2021, we are contacting over 70 drug services including Care Grow Live (CGL), Turning Point, Westminster Drug Project (WDP), Humankind, and NHS Services.

Survey findings will be available from February 2022.
