Peer Navigators: One on One Support
Our Peer Navigators provide one on one support, connecting people living with HIV with a member of our Peer Navigator team which is made up of people living with HIV. They are there to support you in your journey with HIV, help you achieve your goals and reach full health and emotional wellbeing.
Our Peer Navigators can support you as you navigate your HIV journey, whether you have been recently diagnosed or have been living with HIV for some time. They offer a knowledgeable, supportive environment in which you can explore your concerns and fears about living with HIV. They can also connect you to other programs, help you with referrals to other services and provide information on many aspects of living with HIV.
Our Peer Navigators can arrange to meet you in our centrally located offices or they can come to you, meet you at a health clinic, hospital or other safe environment. You can also connect with our team by phone or Skype if that suits you better, particularly if you are located in a rural area.
We also provide support for families and partners. We understand that it is important that everyone surrounding the person living with HIV has support. Because of the stigma that surrounds HIV many family members and partners can feel silenced and unable to access support for themselves. We offer a safe space for couples to explore issues raised by HIV such as disclosure, HIV prevention for partners and accessing treatments.
