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.
Sarah - Counselling
The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metro’s services was amazing.
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 didn’t 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.
Abimbola- First Point
It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.
Joe - Mentoring
The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!
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.
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.
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.
David - Counselling
Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.
