We will be taking a short break from Wednesday 23 December and will be back on deck on Monday 4 January 2021.

All of us at TEAM LPV wish you and your closest a safe and fun festive season. At this time we wish to reflect upon the challenges of the past few months and invite you to join us in imagining a bright and uplifting start to 2021.

Living Positive Victoria CEO, Richard Keane would like to “acknowledge the amazing resilience of our communities across 2020. For all of us, the holiday period will be a time to reflect and to connect with those we love and value. Some of us may not have the ability to be physically present with loved ones from interstate, but we can still reach out with compassion and send our best wishes. The compliance and commitment of all Victorian’s over the last year should provide a basis of great hope as we enter into 2021. We wish all our members and supports a health safe and prosperous year ahead. We can and will get through this challenging period together.”
