We’re here to bring people together to address hepatitis C amongst people with a history of drug use.

What We Do Book a Hepatitis C Test Today

The London Joint Working Group on Substance Use and Hepatitis C

LJWG was formed in 2009 to help drive improvements in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis C in people who use drugs in London.

We work together to improve outcomes for people with hepatitis C in this vulnerable population. The LJWG collaborates with stakeholders from the health service, providers, policy makers, pharmaceutical companies and service users.

Hackney Harm Reduction Hub

In March 2024, we launched a new peer-based Hackney Harm Reduction Hub, working with our partners from Hackney Council and The Hepatitis C Trust and with people with living or lived experience of substance use. Read more here.


If you may be at risk of hepatitis C, you can now order a discreet, at-home testing kit for free on the NHS.

We would like to say thank you to all of the speakers, guests and partner organisations who contributed to our conference on June 9th. It was vital to hear so many perspectives from those working in hepatitis C care, with lived experience, or both. You can watch videos of all four sessions of the conference on our YouTube channel or view the slides from the presentations here.
