Are you over 50 and living in South East London?
Posted on: June 26 2014, 09:07 pm

Over 50 and living with HIV in South East London? We want to hear from you!

The South East London HIV Community Research Initiative is a partnership between volunteers at the Metro Centre and University of Greenwich. We carry out research by communities for communities and we are conducting research into how people with HIV are doing as they get older. Our aim is to influence local services in South East London.

You will be asked to come to two hour long informal focus group in July or August and will be given £10 in cash as a thank you for taking part in the research. There is no need to prepare for focus groups and the discussion will be guided by questions from a researcher and research volunteer.

In particular, we are looking for participants who:

•   live in SE London (Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham, Greenwich or Bexley)
•   are a person living with HIV
•   are aged 50 or over
•   belong to one of the two groups that make up the majority of people living with HIV in London: Black African communities or Men who have sex with men.

Signing up for the research will be easy. You can call Tony on 07858875061 or e-mail us on communityresearch14@gmail.com and we will arrange a time to call to explain more about the project. You can also use this email address and phone number to find out more information generally.


About the project and its partners
The South East London HIV Community Research Initiative is run by METRO and the University of Greenwich. It is an initiative involving community volunteers to carry out peer research on the issues and concerns of people living with or affected by HIV in SE London, and to influence local services and policies.
Our aim is to empower communities to produce their own research evidence on what works and what people want in relation to their local services. The partnership is funded by Health Education SE London, whose aim is to improve patient involvement in service planning and University of Greenwich Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF), which is a ‘seedcorn’ fund to foster innovation in research.
