COVID-19: Support for treatment and recovery services

Collective Voice will be doing everything it can over the coming weeks and months to support the sector at this challenging time. We will be updating this page when new relevant guidance emerges so please keep checking back. We are also looking into what else we can collate or create to strengthen this resource bank. If you have any ideas please email

If you are having problems obtaining supplies of essential personal protective equipment (PPE) and hand sanitising gel, you can call the NHS supply disruption number: 0800 915 9964.

There is also a Slack channel open for information sharing across substance misuse treatment.

Guidance and support

Our support for the sector

If you work for a small treatment and recovery provider and feel that you are struggling in your preparations for COVID-19 or would like to discuss preparations please email us and we will do our best to connect you to someone in a larger organisation happy to talk.

Please note that whilst we will endeavour to do this as soon as possible we cannot guarantee the timescale or content of the advice. Our role is simply to link.

    Many thanks Oliver and team for this excellent website and collating resources. We are in this storm together but we are not all in the same boat. However I think you are providing useful map and coordinates – if that metaphor works 🙂

      Hi Jen
      Thanks for that kind comment, and yes i do think the metaphor works!
      If we have provided people piloting organisation through the storm with map and coordinates that sounds to be of genuine value to the field.
      All the best
