The core of Mainline's activities is outreach work. The outreach workers pick up signals on the street, in social shelters, near sex work and swing venues, in drug consumption rooms, in penitentiaries, at people who use at home, and online on relevant forums and apps. Because picking up signals and trends, informing, and referring, is only possible by being in direct contact with people who use drugs.
Chemsex combines sex and drugs. Mainline conducts long-term research on chemsex, develops informative materials, offers support to people who practice chemsex, and supports organisations in developing and implementing harm reduction interventions around chemsex.
Mainline investigates the use of Performance and Image Enhancing Drugs (PIED) in recreational sports and develops harm reduction interventions and informative materials for athletes taking substances to improve performance and/or alter their physical appearance.
