MAKE A DONATION
You can help the residents of Victoria Street where high levels of public drug taking and illicit drug dealing have lead to unacceptable rates of overdoses and drug related deaths. By donating to Residents for Victoria Street Drug Solutions (RVSDS), you can help our work to educate and raise awareness of the overlooked situation that has contributed to North Richmond now being an area where crime and risks to public health and safety is escalating.
RVSDS supports the trial of a fixed position Medically Supervised Injection Centre (MSIC) as an evidence based and humane measure to make our neighbourhood a safe area for all who live, work and visit.
As residents we work tirelessly to improve our lives and the lives of those in our area. We are completely unaligned to any political party or funded organisation. All our funding comes from our fundraising, our sausage sizzles and the generosity of those who share our vision.
Donating to RVSDS will help us continue our work, reach and inform others through:
community education forums
connections with families who have lost a loved one to OD death
advocacy and awareness raising for journalists, politicians and other interested parties\
