If you're unemployed and living with HIV, the Work Positive programme can help you to take positive steps back towards suitable and sustainable employment in a safe, supportive environment and in a way that suits you.

The programme can also assist if you're currently in work. It can support you to progress your career, explore new career options or change jobs through professional mentoring and development.

If you're living in the UK, you'll be able to access the programme online through Moodle e-learning and Zoom group webinars, along with one-to-one mentoring and coaching.
