Paul Dessauer – Outreach Co-ordinator
outreach@wasua.com.au
Hi, my name is Paul. I coordinate the Outreach Team at WASUA.
I began volunteering at WASUA’s NSEP back in 1999, and was hired as the NSEP worker in May 2000. Shortly after that I move into an Outreach role, and I’ve been here ever since.
I love working for an organisation that values people above profit, and that values the diverse life experiences of its workers. Most of all I love working as part of a passionate and dedicated team, in a job where I know what I do makes a difference in the world and helps other people.

Kevin Winder – NSEP Coordinator
nsep@wasua.com.au
I began working with WASUA in 2014 as a volunteer NSEP worker at the fixed site NSEP in Bunbury and on the Mobile NSEP service. After 6 months, I was appointed as the NSEP Coordinator in Perth. Since then I have been responsible for the NSEP’s in Perth and Bunbury, volunteer recruitment, supervision of the NSEP team, the NSEP and the safe disposal program. A large part of my role involves the supervision of volunteers and NSEP staff and supporting them to deliver a great service to consumers.
I am passionate about harm reduction and I’m committed to providing a great, non-judgemental service that meets the needs of WASUA consumers.

Sarah Grant – Outreach Team Leader

Hi my name is Sarah and I have worked at WASUA since November 2014. For most of this time my role was the youth outreach worker – a role I really enjoyed. Recently I have become the outreach team leader. While I no longer have a program to call my own I enjoy supporting the outreach team with their programs and being involved in the future planning of WASUA. I love working as part of a diverse team which is passionate about improving the health and social outcomes of our community.

Robbie Sleight – ORPACS
orpacs@wasua.com.au
My name is Robbie and I started at WASUA in 2013 doing outreach and mobile needle exchange in the south-west shortly after doing a 6 month stint as a peer educator with the OPAM project up here in Perth. I have had some wonderful times since starting out and enjoy being part of the national network of people who stand up for the rights of drug users. I currently run the ORPACS project which is an advocacy and complaints service for people on methadone or suboxone treatments and work on the NSEP back up in sunny Perth with the wonderful team that is WASUA.

Hi I am Gavin. My current role at WASUA is OPAM Project officer. I started working at WASUA in January 2017 and I have been working in the A.O.D sector for six years. My current role is fantastic as I get to teach peers what to do in an opiate overdose situation and help save their mates lives.

Di Lloyd – Community Development
cdw@wasua.com.au
I have been part of the WASUA team since 2009. My role is as the Community Development Worker. Prior to working at WASUA I have worked in Child Care and been Volunteer Co-ordinator at Rocky Bay and the WA AIDS Council. I was excited as I could identify as an IDU and could work for an agency that had the same beliefs as I did regarding Harm Reduction. It is great to provide a service for people who inject/or use drugs to be treated with respect and not be judged. From my own experience to work in an environment where I did not need to feel ashamed but to be appreciated for the life skills I bring. I am currently the staff representative for AIVL and on the Board of NAPWHA- National Association of People with HIV/AIDS and Femfatales, a sub group of NAPWHA for Women Living with HIV. I have a strong belief we should not feel ashamed being HIV Positive or Hepatitis C and one way to fight is to stand up to stigma and discrimination.

Ruth – Peer Naloxone

My name is Ruth and I joined WASUA in October 2016 as their Health Promotion Officer. I also deliver the Naloxone Peer Education Project, which provides training for people who may witness opioid overdose. I have worked in health promotion over the past 10 years, primarily in the areas of sexual health, blood borne viruses, alcohol and other drugs. I have been involved in the Australian Health Promotion Association for many years, which is the professional body for health promotion practitioners. I am always happy to discuss sexual health, contraception, HIV/AIDS, STIs, healthy relationships, consent, sexuality and gender.
