Positive Help - Befriending
Positive Help aims to improve the day to day quality of life for those living with HIV & Hepatitis C. Our Befriending service is focused on children whose parents are living with these conditions. Our Befrienders take their matches for fortnightly days out and provide individual support tailored to the needs of the child or young person.
Information for volunteers
Befrienders will be matched with a child or young person aged between 5 and 18 who is affected by HIV or Hepatitis C. Befrienders engage in a range of one-to-one, fun activities helping to build the child’s confidence and self-esteem and to introduce them to new experiences.
Our young people often come from chaotic households and have parents or carers who are chronically ill, we want to support them and their families and we need your help to make this happen!
