New London Group for Black MSM affected by or living with HIV
Posted on: September 23 2014, 05:34 pm

In a contribution to increasing the variety and choice of support/socialization groups for people living with HIV, I am working in conjunction with TackleAfrica (an organisation that uses football to educate people on  HIV in Africa), to developing a football group for Black MSM affected by or living with HIV. This group would run fortnightly in a location in or close to Central London.
 
Activities will include fitness exercises, football games, professional coaching sessions, watching football matches together and the use of  football drills to discuss HIV and related issues; i.e. treatment, prevention, keeping fit etc; but generally with a focus on socializing and networking. Attendance is not for football lovers only. Sessions will likely take place after work hours in an indoor pitch for maximum safety, comfort and confidentiality. Food will be served.
 
The project is London-wide. We therefore solicit your cooperation in sign-posting your service users/contacts who would be interested in joining in the fun.
 
Since we are not an organisation providing basic integrated support, we urge you to let us know of your services so that we can also sign-post individuals who may need your support in your direction.
 
The first group session is likely to kick-off in middle to end of October 2014. I will be in touch with more details regarding venue, days and times in due course as well as fliers/posters for the project.
 
Thank you for your cooperation and support; and please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information.
