How can we help?
Our wellbeing support service is a safe, confidential and non-judgemental service for people living with HIV. We offer a space where you have someone to talk to, and to help you practically. This is not counselling. If you feel counselling would be of benefit to you, the wellbeing support worker can provide you with details of our free in house counselling service, or refer you to a relevant organisation.
Using the wellbeing outcome star, we can help you to recognise the areas where you might need support. Our key areas include sexual health advice, practical life issues and HIV disclosure. If we can not help directly we will work with you to get the help you need from other services more suited to your needs.
Sexual Health Advice
Our friendly, non judgement sexual advice service offers a support on a range of issues including:”
· HIV prevention
· HIV testing
· Other STI testing
· Safe Sex information (including condom and lube distribution)
Our wellbeing support workers have a range of knowledge and contacts to help you with practical life issues including:
· Housing and homelessness
· Health and Wellbeing
· Debt management
disclosure of HIV diagnosis
We understand that sharing your diagnosis with friends and family can be a scary prospect. We can help you to recognise who it is important to share this information with, and how you might tell them.
