An evolving digital resource supporting individuals and communities engaging in chemsex
Chemsafe Space has been established following the recent findings from research conducted by Manchester Metropolitan University. It has also been co-produced by, and designed in consultation with, those with lived experience of the “Chemsex Scene” here in Greater Manchester.
This space has been created to bring together all the relevant information for any person using drugs in a sexualized context in Greater Manchester who may be looking for further information, advice or support.
Chemsafe Space will be continually developed to ensure new and correct information is shared. If you find a broken link or something that seems out of date please report this to us at Recovery@LGBT.Foundation.
If you would like to contribute information or support, share your experience or ask a question please email on the above address.
