Crew services have been affected by COVID-19 but we are doing our best to make sure we can offer support, information and advice during this difficult time.
We’ve created resources on how to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 including information on sex, drugs, mental health and well being. Find our detailed web page here, information on reducing harm if taking drugs alone and a cannabis harm reduction 420 and lockdown resource.
From Tuesday 5th January, we are continuing our Digital Drop-in at the usual opening times – Mondays to Saturdays 1-5pm except Thursdays when we open 3-7pm.
Our self-service kiosk will be closed but please get in touch if you need condoms, dams and lube and we will signpost you to where you access c:card items.
We are currently not able to offer blood-borne virus testing or pregnancy testing. To find out how you can access sexual health services in Lothian visit www.lothiansexualhealth.scot.
We are planning how to re-start safe, socially distanced c:card services, Blood Borne Virus (BBV) testing, pregnancy testing or face to face support when restrictions are eased; in the meantime contact us to find out what services are available, such as NHS Lothian’s sexual health services and c:card’s free condom delivery service.
To get in touch with the Drop-in team, simply drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also direct message us via Instagram @Crew_2000 or you can also drop us a text confidentially on 07860047501.
If you need support from another drug service or need to access harm reduction materials visit www.scottishdrugservices.com to find your closest service provider.
Counselling for people aged 18+
Crew Counselling Service is currently offering telephone sessions or online counselling (with video), and we are accepting new referrals for counselling. We are not currently able to offer face to face counselling sessions.
To make a referral or inquiry about counselling, please email email@example.com
For information on other drug services, or for support elsewhere in Scotland, please check out services in your area.
Looking for up to date training on drug trends, the impact of COVID and drug awareness? We are currently offering online training sessions. Get in touch with our training team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Our training and communications team are also still working to create information on drugs, mental wellbeing and harm reduction – keep an eye on our social media, website and newsletter to stay updated.
Our outreach services are postponed until restrictions are removed and we hope to be out and about as soon as possible after that. Please keep watching our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) for updates.
Our expert witnesses are following government restrictions and won’t be travelling but may be available for work that can be completed at home. Please contact us on email@example.com
