Following on from last year's fantastic work at St Paul's Carnival, our BDP outreach team, made up of staff and invaluable volunteers, returned to St Paul's to provide essential harm reduction advice, free resources and a safe place for those wanting to relax in our chill-out zone.

There was excellent engagement throughout the day. It was great to be out in our local community where we could hear what BDP means to people from all walks of life. We had great feedback from students, parents and professionals.

Last year, the Carnival organisers were "blown away" by our team's involvement, so this year we made sure to deliver some of the same fantastic resources, like our chill-out zone and health care truck. We also launched new resources, like our harm reduction advice cards and refillable festival water bottles to keep people hydrated when they're having fun.

 The service BDP provide is fantastic and you should all be very proud!
