Who we are
Peer Action is made up of adult members who are HIV+ or are affected by HIV. We were originally formed by gay HIV+ men, but we are now very diverse and open to all irrespective of gender, transgender, sexual orientation, race, religion or nationality.
Our aims are To encourage participants living with HIV to value their health and well being while minimising the impact of isolation and anxieties, though community focused peer socialising, education and support
To create a safe, confidential space for a community led peer support group to meet in a relaxed, informal and social setting
To enhance the psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual health and well being of people living with HIV & AIDS in Brighton and Hove and surrounding areas
To reduce anxiety and stress, by building resilience and skills for each participant to create peer support, whilst improving their relationship with themselves and others
To support the formation of groups for various activities – social, physical, companionship, support, training, advice.
