Peter James and Mike Trace, Independent Drugs Commission for Brighton & Hove, January 2013.
In the spring of 2012, the Safe In The City Partnership responded to a proposal from Caroline Lucas MP to set up an Independent Drugs Commission to look at the current state of drug problems in the city, and the various efforts to address them. The aim was to take a fresh look at the city's response to the problems associated with drug markets and drug use, and to suggest ways in which the local agencies could be more successful in reducing the drug related problems that mattered to the citizens of Brighton & Hove.
Stephen Parkin PhD and Dr. Ross Coomber, Informal ‘Sorter' Houses: A qualitative insight of the ‘shooting gallery' phenomenon in a UK setting. Health & Place, University of Huddersfield, 2009, 15 (4). pp. 981-98, ISSN 1353-8292.
This paper considers the ‘shooting gallery' phenomenon and presents findings from a sample of injecting drug users with experience of attending such premises in the South-West of England (UK). Due to the reciprocal relationship within these settings, involving the provision of drugs for place, the term Informal Sorter House has been coined by the authors. The social organisation and associative health risks within Informal Sorter Houses were found to have resounding similarities with those previously identified within American settings. However, several differences were also noted. Namely, Informal Sorter Houses appear to be located within a continuum of control that contains regulated, unregulated, and restored injecting environments and accordingly, it is suggested that such environments are in constant flux. A further difference relates to drug-user activism identified within such settings. This involves the establishment of an informal, street-based harm reduction practice that provides potential for future service development.
