From 7th November we will be re-opening Number 11 Brunswick Square, which is Covid secure, on Saturdays. Offering a range of services to support people struggling with their alcohol or drug use who find it difficult to visit us during the week.
In March 2020 we reduced our opening times, including closing on Saturdays, to enable us to flex our services to support Bristol’s most vulnerable, including people self-isolating and shielding and people who were rough sleeping who moved into hotels as part of ‘Everyone In’.
We are now in a position to re-open on Saturdays and offer our services to people who work or who would find it difficult to get to the centre of Bristol on weekdays. We will be opening between 9.30am and 1pm offering 1-2-1s, triages to support transfer into structured support and needle exchange.
All our other services remain open as usual. If you need further information please contact our Helpline in confidence on 0117 987 6000.

At bdp we believe that people need support beyond Monday-Friday and pride ourselves on being as accessible as possible. So I am really pleased we are now able to move back to weekend opening so that we can support people with their alcohol or drug use, who are working or in education, or who find weekend contact suits their circumstances better.
