The NSW Users and AIDS Association (NUAA) is governed, staffed and led by people with lived experience of drug use. We provide innovative harm reduction services for people in NSW who use drugs, as well as for those that advocate for improved service delivery and a more rational approach to drug use.
NUAA runs a needle and syringe program at 345 Crown Street, Surry Hills. and is open every week day 8am-8pm. Check out the full list of available equipment. The NSP is also now home to a Open Clinic on Crown, a nurse-led primary health care clinic that is a collaboration of NUAA and the Kirketon Road Centre. It runs Monday to Friday 11:30-3:30 as a contribution to providing affordable, accessible and equitable health care to all parts of our community. You can also see the full list of NSPs around the state via the NSW Health website or check out AIVL’s Australia-wide directory (please note these directories may not be up to date, if you notice any errors, please contact them to let them know).
Help shape the future of our NSP
The NSW NSP Enhanced Data Collection Survey is on again from Monday February 18 till Friday March 1. The survey is rolled out at NSPs across NSW and can be completed at NUAA’s NSP, 345 Crown St Surry Hills. We’re encouraging all our members and service users to complete the survey at their closest NSP.
The annual survey allows NUAA and others to have completely anonymous, no questions asked service. The findings help everyone involved in the NSW NSP to understand who is using the program and how to better target our services. If you would like more information you can ring NUAA on 8354 7343 or free call 1800 644 413.
