Residents for Victoria Street – Judy Ryan and Melody Patterson

Thursday, 11 January 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

The Residents for Victoria Street Drug Solutions Incorporated (RVSDS) is a group of Yarra residents from Victoria Street and the surrounding streets, who are directly and personally affected by the high levels of public drug taking and illicit drug dealing within the precinct. They successfully advocated for a Medically Supervised Injection Centre (MSIC) to be trialled within the Victoria Street precinct; to address the high levels of public drug taking; unacceptable rates of overdoses and fatalities; and the associated drug dealing, crime and risk to public health and safety.

Judy and Melody outline the progress that the group have made so far and also what is planned for 2018, including the launch of the MSIC in July.
