Body Positive North West

Important Announcement
    Body Positive North West: Important Announcement Owing to increasing financial pressures, the Board of Body Positive NW has taken the difficult and very sad decision to close the service and to cease operation. This decision has been taken following legal and financial advice and is done on a voluntary basis to ensure all creditors will be paid in full and as much funding as possible will be retained to do future work around HIV by a different organisation. Talking Therapies the counselling service will continue to provide a service at a different location and all existing clients will have the opportunity of transferring. Where possible, counsellors have had individual conversations with their clients so they are aware of this. The new services will be provided at 34 Manchester Road, Chorlton and will be under the auspices of Psychotherapy and Counselling North West. Further information will be given with a contact number for appointments. BPNW's contract with Lancashire County Council and its partners should be able to continue with a seamless transfer to a different organisation. Board members are in discussion with Lancashire County Council on facilitating this. The Board of BPNW regrets this decision but wants to thank all the numerous volunteers and service users as well as employed staff who have helped to provide some of the most innovative and outstanding services for people who are living with HIV for over a quarter of a century. For information on HIV and available services, please contact: George House Trust: Tel. 0161 274 4499 Email:ght@ght.org.uk website: www.ght.org.uk or NAM Tel. +44 (0)20 3242 0820 Email: info@nam.org.uk website: www.nam.org.uk BPNW.

Please help to publicise the event below to anyone who may not have used our services. 

George House Trust wishes to extend a warm welcome to people living with HIV who have been using BPNWs services by inviting them to come to an open session at GHT on Friday 25th May 2012 from 10-12. We will be able to provide information to people on the range of services that we offer. A light lunch will be provided.
If however, people cant make the open session at this time, or if anyone needs to speak to someone at GHT sooner, or in the future, they can contact us on 0161 274 4499 or by e-mailing support@ght.org.uk. YOu can also email me direct on lynda@ght.org.uk
 We aim to ensure that people living with HIV have access to a wide range of health and well-being services appropriate to their needs.
Thanks Lynda Shentall Director of Services at George House Trust lynda@ght.org.uk
