Peer Mentoring Service

We are really excited to announce that we are now offering a new peer mentoring service. 

We can now organise for you to meet up with a peer mentor for support.  Peer Mentors are people living with HIV, who have completed a peer mentor training course. This enables them to support anyone experiencing problems relating to their HIV diagnosis. Anyone living with HIV can access the peer mentor service, irrespective of how long they have been diagnosed or what their difficulties are.

We currently have seven peer mentors who are able to support people within the hospital.  Peer mentors may get asked to see people who have recently found out they are living with HIV, to offer support, or perhaps an in-patient who would like to see a friendly face.  We hope to recruit more peer mentors, who are willing to commit to the peer mentor training and are able to offer some free time to support people during difficult times.
