Free NCB events: Supporting adolescents and young adults living with HIV
Posted on: October 11 2012, 04:01 pm

Hi there,

I coordinate the Children and Young People HIV Network at the National Children’s Bureau. We’ve been working on a project addressing transitions for young people living with HIV from childhood and children’s services to adult life and services (some of you helped inform our project report* - thanks!).

We’re now holding free practice sharing events in London (22 November), Leeds (17 January) and Birmingham (1 February).

These events will provide opportunities to:
  • exchange practice around supporting young people living with HIV as they enter and settle into adulthood
  • access and learn how to get the most from new free resources we’ve been developing for young people, parents and carers, and further/higher education providers
  • connect with colleagues from a wide range of services.

Participants are welcome from both children's and adult services, in all sectors, whose work addresses the needs of adolescents and/or young adults living with diagnosed HIV. This includes non-specialist practitioners who work with HIV positive young people as part of their caseload.

Further details, a flyer and booking form can be accessed at http://ncb.org.uk/hiv/training.

Please feel free to circulate. Apologies if you’ve already seen this message elsewhere.

I hope to see you at one of the events!

Emily
