A Safe Injecting Facility is a clean, safe, healthcare environment where people can inject drugs, obtained elsewhere, under the supervision of trained health professionals.
They offer a compassionate, person-centred service which reduces the harms associated with injecting drug use and can help people access appropriate services. A SIF can help health service staff to reach and support vulnerable and marginalised people who often do not, cannot or no longer engage with existing health services.
