What our NSEP does not do...

What can the NSEP help with?

For more than 25 years, Peer Based Harm Reduction WA's NSEP has been a place people can go to confidentially access a comprehensive range of equipment for intravenous, intramuscular, and subcutaneous injection, and safely dispose of their used equipment. As well as injecting equipment, we can provide the disposal containers you need to help keep you and your community safe. If you are not sure what you need, we can help!

We stock a range of:

  • 1mL and 0.5mL fixed-needle syringes
  • Barrels from 1mL to 50mL
  • Needle tips from 18G to 27G
  • Butterfly infusions
  • Specialised filtering options
  • BAC water
  • Sterile water ampoules
  • Spoons
  • Tourniquets
  • Safe disposal containers
  • Sexual health supplies
  • Naloxone for the reversal of opioid overdose

Got questions? Our friendly staff, many of whom have experience of injecting drug use, are a great down-to-earth source of help and accurate information. No question is too weird! Ask us about:

  • Safer injecting
  • Steroid and peptide injection
  • Finding veins and vein care
  • Injection-related infections and injuries
  • Prevention of blood-borne viruses like hep C and HIV
  • Prevention of sexually transmitted infections
  • Testing and treatment for blood-borne viruses and sexually transmitted infections
  • Overdose prevention and take-home-naloxone
  • Referral to other in-house services, such as the Health Clinic
  • Referral to services elsewhere
  • Anything else… Just ask!

What does it cost?

One-for-one Exchange

Bring in your used equipment for us to dispose of safely and we will exchange it for new equipment free of charge on a one-for-one basis.


Subsidised Purchase

If you don't have any used equipment to exchange, you can always purchase equipment at a reduced cost.

Items that are not available on exchange are also offered at a reduced cost.



If you don't have any used equipment to exchange and you don't have any money, don't worry!

PBHR WA will always give you enough equipment to keep you safe.


To find out more about what equipment the NSEP stocks and for prices on individual items, check out our NSEP Pricelist here!

Just walk-in to one of our fixed-sites in Perth or in Bunbury.

Please note that PBHR WA closes on public holidays!
