About the NNEF
The National Needle Exchange Forum (NNEF) exists to actively promote and support the provision of high quality needle and syringe programmes, therefore ensuring the reduction of injecting-related harm as a key part of the English drugs strategy.
The NNEF members are needle and syringe programme staff, users and advocates from across England. The Forum meets at least once a year – these meetings are free for members to attend and include presentations from invited speakers, updates from delegates, and practical skills-sharing and discussions to promote good practice in this field.
