About HIT

HIT delivers effective interventions on drugs, community safety and other public health concerns. We produce publications, run mass media campaigns, deliver training, organise conferences and provide consultancy to individuals, community groups, health and social care and criminal justice agencies locally, nationally and at an international level.
 
HIT, formerly the Mersey Drug Training and Information Centre was established in 1985 to reduce drug-related harm and set up one of the UK’s first syringe exchange schemes. Based in Liverpool where we still provide a reference library on drugs, the organisation has an international reputation for developing, advocating and implementing a pragmatic and effective approach to the use of drugs.
