Would you benefit from life coaching?


We are now offering life coaching as part of the ‘Better Together’ project.  The service, which is provided by accredited coaches, is being delivered by ‘Result CIC’ a community interest company that works with people who feel marginalised or excluded, with the aim of increasing their confidence in their abilities and supporting them to reach their full potential.


We can fund up to 10 sessions with a coach and these can be delivered face-to-face (when we’re back open), online via ‘Zoom’ or ‘Skype’ or over the phone.  Sessions normally last one hour.


The aim of coaching is to empower you to make positive changes to your life through a series of focussed conversations where you look at your current situation, decide what you want and then work with your coach to decide on the necessary steps to get there.


It can be particularly beneficial for people who are:

  • Recently diagnosed and re-assessing life choices and possibilities
  • Recently granted leave to remain in the UK
  • Underemployed or doing a ‘lower’ job than qualified for
  • Seeking new challenges or wanting to change direction in life
  • Long-term unemployed but now preparing to return to work


The service is open to anyone living with HIV – including peer mentors.  If you feel that you’d benefit email joshua or call 0161 274 4499.

National AIDS Trust (NAT) Coordinated Care Focus Group


As we get older, we are more likely to have health issues or need support, like social care, or support from services like George House Trust.


The aim of this focus group is to find out from you what help you might need to organise and coordinate all the different aspects of your care as they grow older. We are looking to speak to people aged 45 and over who have experience of using multiple health, social and well-being services.


We’re hosting two groups: 

  • Monday 14th December, 11am – 12.30pm – you can read more and register your interest here


  • Wednesday 16th December, 4pm – 5.30pm – you can read more and register your interest here
