WHAT IS COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS? 

 

Community Connections is a three year project funded by Manchester City Council. The aim of the project is to increase the social connectivity of people living with HIV across Manchester. 

 

As part of the project trained volunteers are ‘matched’ with people living with HIV who want support to access new activities and opportunities in the local community. Support is time-limited, with a focus on supporting people to engage with their community, meet new people and find things that will get them out and about.

 

WHAT IS A PEER MENTORING?

 

Peer mentoring is form of mentorship that takes place between a person who has lived through a specific experience and a person who is new to that experience or requires additional support. It is a relationship based on mutual learning and growth, with the aim of supporting people to achieve a sense of control and empowerment.
