GMI Partnership

The GMI Partnership brings together three leading statutory and voluntary organisations in London to provide an integrated and interpersonal HIV prevention service for men who have sex with men. The Partnership comprises Positive East, the Metro Centre Ltd and West London Gay Men's Project (London Borough of Hounslow). Between them the partners employ over 50 staff, over 125 volunteers and over 50 years experience of:

  • developing, delivering and evaluating HIV prevention and sexual health promotion services targeting men who have sex with men;
  • recruiting, inducting, placing, training and supporting hundreds of volunteers;
  • working collaboratively to achieve health outcomes for men who have sex with men;
  • working strategically to balance cost-effective service delivery and quality standards; and
  • significant experience in counselling, outreach and detached work and other areas including advocacy, capacity building, training, group work and clinical services.

Working under the Pan London HIV Prevention Programme, the GMI Partnership provides a Health Trainer, Counselling, Mentoring and Resource Distribution service to men across London.

Joan - First Point

Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.

Simon - Mentoring

By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.

Ebere - First Point

I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.

David - Counselling

Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.

Peter- First Point

I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.

Sarah - Counselling

The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metroís services was amazing.

Kwasi - Mentoring

During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.

Joe - Mentoring

The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!

Abimbola- First Point

It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.

Michael - Counselling

I gained a huge amount of help from the counselling service and would like to thank the service for offering so much support.

METRO is always looking for talented people of all backgrounds for a variety of interesting roles, as employees and volunteers.
Support comes in many forms, money is one of them! We'd very much appreciate a donation to help us continue our work.
