Get Involved

As a peer-led and peer-run organisation, Positive Life welcomes the involvement of all people living with HIV, including people affected by HIV. There are a number of ways you can be part of Positive Life and get involved in the community in NSW.

One of the main ways to support Positive Life is to become a member. People living with HIV are eligible to become a Full member, while people who do not live with HIV themselves and who still wish to support the organisation are welcome to be an Associate member.

Share your story
Our magazine ‘Talkabout’ has been published regularly since we started in 1988. We welcome your stories, opinions and experiences about living with HIV.  Today Talkabout is published as a printed magazine and also available online. Please get in touch if you have a story to share or you would like to be interviewed for Talkabout.

Financial support
You can support Positive Life financially, either by making a donation (one-off or reoccuring), or leave a bequest in your Will.

Participate in Research
Positive Life partners with a number of tertiary and clinical institutions in the interests of informing and guiding the development of services and resources to meet the needs of people living with HIV in NSW.

We welcome people living with HIV, including your partners, friends or family affected by HIV as volunteers to assist us in a number of different ways such as at our annual events, in our Digital Mentors program, with regular membership mailouts or other activities, forums, or consultations whenever we need extra hands.
