We run several groups in London and online. These groups are designed to help you live better with HIV, share your experiences and meet similar people. They offer support from people who understand your concerns and can boost your confidence and social life.
The groups are a great place to meet other people in the same situation as you. They provide a safe space to talk and hear other people’s perspectives and are always run by qualified facilitators.
This support group is for gay, bi and trans men and other men who have sex with men.
It consists of a one evening a week, three-week programme of support and workshops for men who have recently been diagnosed HIV positive. Sessions are highly participative and the mutual support builds group members' confidence in their ability to come to terms with their diagnosis.
Most men attend within the first 18 months of diagnosis. However, the programme has proved to be beneficial for individuals at any stage of their HIV diagnosis.
Upcoming start dates
- Thursday 6 December 2018
- Thursday 7 March 2019
Recently Diagnosed (online)
This is a one evening a week, three-week online video support group for people living with HIV who can't (or prefer not to) physically attend one of our support groups.
The group's aim is to support recently diagnosed individuals, helping them better understand the impact of a diagnosis, including talking with friends, family and work, treatment options and treatment as prevention, emotional wellbeing and accessing other support.
The group uses a simple, free app that allows you to join and see other members of the group. You do not need to use your real name when you access the app.
Upcoming start dates
- Thursday 10 January 2019
