Peer Based Harm Reduction WA’S Perth fixed site has participated in the survey since 1998 with the South West fixed site started participating in 2001. Peer Based Harm Reduction WA is committed to maximising participation by WA consumers and has been successful in providing 63% of the WA responses and 12% of the national responses in 2019.

In 2020, there was a reduction in the number of PBHRWA consumers who participated in the ANSPS. Participation was, in part, impacted COVID-19 restrictions. However, the Kirby institute provided adequate PPE for PBHRWA staff and consumers. Gloves and facemasks were provided in addition to participants chocolate and pencils being individually bagged.

Participation was also impacted by the decreased capacity of PBHRWA to administer the ANSPS due to suspension of the PBHRWA volunteer program, since March 2020, in response to COVID-19. Typically at least two volunteers would support the ANSPS each day, in addition to the NSEP staff.
