Staff from our HIV team at the CHIVA conference

About this service

We provide family support, one-to-one support and group support for people living with HIV in Croydon. We offer counselling, advice and advocacy, home assessments and services for young people.

Our home visits provide bespoke support for families, carers and young people living with or affected by HIV. Our advice and advocacy service provides support with immigration and welfare benefits.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Currently the family and one-to-one support service is provided over the telephone and email. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide any support face to face. We are looking to also set up online group support. We look forward to resuming services fully once it is appropriate to do so.
