Living with HIV and/or Hepatitis can sometimes feel overwhelming. It may leave you feeling worried or isolated. We offer a range of support services to help you understand what is going on and enable you to take control and make any changes you need to.
You may be newly diagnosed with HIV and/or Hepatitis, or you may have been diagnosed for some time, and have a range of questions about:
- Disclosure and how life will be from now on
- What this means for you and others
- Your health and wellbeing
Our Community Liaison and Participation Project is a Wales-wide service which can help if you are living with HIV and/or Hepatitis. We can help if you are feeling isolated or lonely by increasing your access to a wide range of services in the local area. We can also help with some of the day-to-day issues of living with HIV and/or Hepatitis and how they impact on your life. Services are confidential and are delivered by trained professionals in a variety of venues and community locations across Wales.
If you have difficulty travelling we can provide support by telephone or online. We can also arrange a meeting close to your home or in some cases a home visit may be possible – whatever works for you.
This service can offer support and advice:
- reducing isolation
- returning to employment
- managing your health
- peer support
- access to other services
There are a range of ways you can access the service:
- by phone
- by email
Our staff and trained volunteers who deliver these services live and work in local communities across Wales.
