Positively UK

Positively UK provides peer-led support, advocacy and information to everyone living with HIV to manage any aspect of their diagnosis, care and life with HIV. Working in partnership with the NHS our peer work is integrated at clinics across London. We run a range of peer-led support groups for women, heterosexual men and women and gay men. Our programme of workshops support people with a new HIV diagnosis, those planning parenthood or pregnant and to develop self-management skills to live a long and healthy life with HIV. We offer training to people with HIV to deliver efficient peer support, and collaborate with clinics and voluntary organisations around the UK to establish peer support programmes.

We believe that people living with HIV are best placed to advocate for their own needs. To achieve this we promote patient leadership through skills building initiative such as our Taking Part programme in London. Nationally we co-ordinate PozFem-UK, the network of women living with HIV and co-ordinate the biennial Conference of People Living with HIV. Positively UK is a stakeholder of NHS England’s Clinical Reference Group for HIV and a strategic partner of the Department of Health through the Women’s Health and Equality Consortium. Staff are community representations of the Independent Advisory Group on AIDS, the British HIV Nurses Association and UKCab.
