Inroads Islington is a psychosocial support and prescribing outreach service in Islington.

We work with people who are rough sleeping or are vulnerably housed to address their drug or alcohol issues.

Together we help people so that they feel able to enter structured treatment and support.

Any professional can refer into our service.

We have been absolutely blown away by the professionalism, commitment, and
trauma-informed practice of your team.

Women’s Respite Centre

What we do

We provide different levels and types of support for the individuals we work with such as:

  • Advice and information around health and wellbeing
  • Strength-based assessments of needs
  • Harm reduction advice and support, including providing Naloxone
  • One-to-one support with an allocated keyworker
  • Drop-in sessions at local community venues
  • Prescribing for those who need access to opiate treatment

We also help the people to engage with healthcare and drug and alcohol services and get access to housing support.
