Penington Institute: Drug Use During Lockdown and Social Isolation

Why is this survey important?

We have designed this survey to understand how lockdown and social distancing as a result of coronavirus are affecting the drug market and the people who are using drugs. This survey is giving you a voice on issues that matter to you.  It's totally anonymous and it only takes about 8 minutes to do.

The anonymous results will be available on our website:

Penington Institute is a not-for-profit that connects lived experience and research to improve community safety in relation to drugs.

If you're interested in learning more, please send an email to our Deputy CEO, Dr Stephen McNally (

Before the survey begins, there are two short questions to confirm you understand this information, that you live in Australia, and that you are 18 or older.
