HR23 Opening Plenary
One of the issues I have when writing these reports is that there is no way, in this short piece, to do justice to all of the work and all of the team members and volunteers that do that work for and with our community across the year. To get a wider sense of our work I urge you to check out the different program reports across the pages of this, our Annual Report for 2022 – 2023.
To our valued members,
our community and our stakeholders,
Welcome to Harm Reduction
