Calabash is an initiative that provides an environment for African men living with HIV to support each other and share experiences and ideas around issues raised by living with HIV.
Monthly sessions will be held where African men will benefit from different kinds of support, including HIV-related, interpersonal (physical and psychosocial), economic, learning, and answers to deep-seated questions and burning issues.
This time we have decided to make it more exciting and dynamic with empowering activities, social events, health and wellbeing sessions, indoor and outdoor activities, skills-based training and opportunities to build your skills and confidence with volunteering possibilities.
At George House Trust we offer 1 to 1 services for all African men living with HIV, you can talk to our African Men's Engaement Worker, Jeff Ukiri, about any issues that may concern you and he will advise, signpost or advocate on your behalf.
Jeff can also signpost you to other orgnaisations if you have a specific need, which may not be directly related to your HIV health.
Living well with HIV is undoubtedly manageable, but it can also mean that you encounter a milestone in your life that needs some additional support. It does not matter whether you are recently diagnosed or have been living with HIV for many years, book an appointment with Jeff to discuss those concerns that are important to you by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org
If it is more convenient to you, a telephone appointment could be arranged at a time suitable to you; or perhaps you would prefer a meeting via Skype. Call us if you would like to discuss either of these alternative means of speaking with Jeff on 0161 274 4499.
