HIV Family Support Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham (LSL)

Therapeutic, practical and emotional support for families living with HIV in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham

I was delighted to be invited to the METRO families' seaside trip this summer. It gave me a real boost to spend time with others in my situation. I feel much less lonely now, and I'm happier and more confident to share my diagnosis with loved ones.
