Peer support means

  • getting support from someone else living with HIV
  • speaking with someone who shares your experience of HIV
  • finding answers together from someone else in your shoes

We believe that people living with HIV are best placed to support and advocate as equals for the needs of other people living with HIV.

Whether you are a woman living with HIV, a heterosexual person living with HIV, or a gay man living with HIV, talking with someone else like you is the best advocate for your own needs. You have a right to ask to speak to someone living with HIV when you’re looking for support to live well.

We run a range of peer-led support groups for gay men, women, and heterosexual men and women. Click here to view our support groups.

Whether it’s housing needs, treatments questions, ageing, employment or vocational support, the value of speaking with and getting support from someone else with a lived experience of HIV can make all the difference.
