African Services

METRO provides a range of dedicated servies for African people and communities. This work includes HIV testing, community mobilisation, outreach, HIV support, general health screening, community development, mentoring and sexual health promotion. Most recently, METRO has been funded by MAC Cosmetics to develop a HIV testing clinic in Woolwich.

Our work with African people and communities builds on the long term work undertaken by Harbour Trust over more than a decade, and since the merge of the two organisations, this work has been consolidated and expanded.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Joe - Mentoring

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

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.

Sarah - Counselling

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

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.
