Through our workshop programmes, we aim to support self-help, self-management, and self-development for people looking to work through the difficult issues that we face.
We have a professionally trained, registered and approved team of experts who can help guide you through any issues you may have, ranging from social care, counselling, therapeutic services and training. We offer courses, which will help you to empower and manage those whose lives have been affected with HIV
Our workshops are available to anyone, after an initial consultation. This includes partners, family and friends of people living with HIV and any other STI (sexually transmitted infections) listed in our information packs. We also offer advice and training to people at risk of STI’s. We aim to offer services that are appropriate for all sections of the community.
