Peer Support

Our Peer Support Programme is here to help you live well with HIV

We offer both peer support and opportunities to become a peer mentor

Experience of living with HIV? Become a Peer Mentor! 

We’re always looking for new Peer Mentor volunteers to join our Peer Support Programme.  We offer plenty of training  for all our new peer support mentors.

As well as our general peer support activities, we are also seeking volunteer peer supporters for sessions in one of our East London Hospital clinics for one half day a week, and an IT-knowledgeable person to support out on Line Peer Support project.

For more information about becoming a Peer Mentor, please download our Peer Mentor’s Information document.  You can also contact Antonio or by calling 020 7791 9314.

If you’re in need of Peer Support, our Peer Mentors can: 

  • Be a positive role model
  • Listen to your concerns and understand them
  • Help you to navigate the health care system
  • Answer some of your questions
  • Link you to resources in the community
  • Share their own life experience of living with HIV
  • Suggest ways to better manage some of the challenges that living with HIV can present

If you feel our Peer Support programme would be right for you.  Please contact Antonio or by filling out the right hand side of the page.
