HIV Scotland: Positive Speakers Programme
Posted on: October 2 2013, 12:12 pm

HIV Scotland is running a short, free course to train people living with HIV in the skills needed to help get their voice heard.
The ‘Positive Speakers’ programme is designed to support and empower people with HIV to talk about their experiences to public sector leaders, key decision-makers and to large audiences.

Sharing individual stories about what it’s really like to live with HIV is one of the most powerful ways to inform, educate and influence politicians, service providers and policy-makers – as well as the public.
This course will give the skills and confidence to do just that, with sessions on: speaking to different audiences; storytelling; self-care and issues around telling people you have HIV; dealing with difficult questions; and of course lots of speaking practice.
The training includes four half day sessions, running across November 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th starting at 12.30 in Glasgow, and support and refresher sessions can be provided after the course is complete too. It’s free and lunch and transport costs are all provided.

Anyone who is living with HIV in Scotland and interested in speaking out about their experiences is welcome – email robin.jakob@hivscotland.com or call on 0131 603 8776 for more information or to sign up.
