Safer Dancing and Claire and Jose
1992 - 2002


In the early 1990’s as a way of distributing the ‘Peanut Pete’ leaflets and to give us an idea of what was going on we had drug workers and volunteers who worked in nightclubs and at ‘raves’. This led to a campaign of harm reduction information, policy and training around nightclub drug use that we produced with Manchester City Council, which we called ‘Safer Dancing’. The Safer Dancing Campaign was hugely influential, despite a serious lack of funds, and became the blueprint for the many initiatives that sprang up in both the UK and internationally. Pete’s success also led to spin offs such as the ‘Claire and Jose’ leaflets.
