Peer Support Scotland

People counselling one another

Peer Support Scotland is a peer-led service for people in Scotland living with HIV and/or Hepatitis C.

Services we offer

  • One to one advice and advocacy
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Peer support groups
  • Helping people with employability and life skills development.
  • Education and training

Accessing our service

If you need to access support from us, or would like to make a referral, then get it touch via email at peersupportscotland@tht.org.uk or call Martin Hutcheson on 0141 206 2010.

We’ll arrange to assess your needs and see how we can help, after which we’ll assign you a peer for further support. Alternatively, we may signpost to an external organisation if they would be better placed to help you.

For more information about developing employability or life skills, please email peersupportscotland@tht.org.uk or call Paula McCabe on 0141 206 2015.

Becoming a peer for the project

If you have lived experience of HIV and/or Hepatitis C, live in Scotland and want to become a peer for the project, we would love to hear from you. We have a structured recruitment and training programme for volunteers.

For more information, please email peersupportscotland@tht.org.uk or call Kristina Higgins on 0141 206 2009.
