Services for Over 50s | George House Trust

Age+

 

An ever-growing ageing population of people living with HIV means support services need to change and adapt to meet their diverse needs.

 

We are continuing to provide Peer Mentoring.

 

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. 

 

People who are fifty and over are the fastest growing group of people living with HIV in the UK.  Nearly half of people accessing HIV care are 45 and over (47.8%), 15.5% are 55 and over and 4% are over 65. This has almost doubled in the last decade, in 2005, 25% of people were 45 and over.
