Peer support is a relationship in which people see each other as equal partners and where the focus is on mutual learning and growth.
Peer Support Training: Connecting for support
We are committed to training people living with HIV to become volunteer peer supporters and leaders of peer services.
We are an accredited training provider with the Open College Network and have trained over 700 peer mentors through our national training programme, Project 100. Our peer support volunteers have access to our 3-day training programme and two nationally recognized qualifications: Peer Mentoring and HIV Treatment Literacy. Many of our partner organisations across the UK have now employed people living with HIV in key service delivery roles as a result of partnering with us and receiving training through Project 100.
We are building on the legacy of Project 100 by strengthening existing partnerships and learning opportunities with voluntary and clinical services across the UK. We are equally committed to expanding our reach and developing new partnerships with other health and care organisations to support the development and delivery of peer support within their own services.
Positively UK can provide tailored training support and resources for interested partners – contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
