Young people on canoes at a METRO PPC weekend residential in the Lake District

About this service

METRO PPC runs two youth groups for young people living with or affected by HIV.

Crib meets on the first Saturday of every month from 12pm to 5pm at METRO Vauxhall. Reach meets on the third Saturday of every month from 4:30pm to 8pm at Trinity Church in Tooting Bec. We talk about issues affecting young people, including issues around HIV. Sometimes we have trips to the theatre, bowling and the cinema.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Currently this service is provided over the telephone. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide any support face to face. We look forward to resuming services fully once it is appropriate to do so.

Who can use this service

For a young person to access the youth groups, they must be aware of either their HIV diagnosis or a family member’s HIV diagnosis. If the young person is not yet aware, we can provide advice and support with disclosure.
