Peer Support at The Sussex Beacon:
The Sussex Beacon is happy to announce that their HIV Peer Mentor programme has recommenced following the appointment of a Peer Mentor Co-ordinator.
Peer support is a vital provision within the community and plays an essential role in enabling those living with HIV to sustain their long-term condition management, physically and emotionally. The training for volunteer peer mentors will be provided through Project 100, a service delivered by Positively UK.
The Peer Mentor programme is proud to have the support and commitment of local partners primarily from (amongst others):
- The Lawson Unit
- Community HIV Specialist Service
- East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust
- THT South
- Lunch Positive
- Peer Action
They will be essential in helping to both promote the service and to refer mentors and those seeking support.
