Spiking is when someone puts alcohol or drugs into another person’s drink or body without their consent or knowledge.
People can also be a victim of ‘needle spiking’, which is injecting someone with drugs without their consent.

Spiking someone could be a number of criminal offences, which can carry sentences of up to ten years in prison; even when no other offence, like theft or assault, has happened (Police UK)

Nightlife Harm Reduction Crew staff and volunteers can attend venues, large events, festivals etc. to give advice and support to revellers. We can set up information tables which are available to give out safer party goods, information, and someone to talk to. We also conduct surveys which can allow wider insight into drug use, spiking and alcohol trends at events and inform future action. For larger spaces/events we can also have chill-out and welfare areas for party goers. If this service is of interest please contact Darren@crew2000.org.uk
