HIV and Ageing
Ageing with HIV can mean a whole set of changing needs – around welfare benefits and pensions, moving and/or supported housing, and struggling to cope on a limited budget. In addition there are particular health issues, some common to all older people, and some more HIV specific. We are developing an integrated health and social care support service to help ease the burden for older people: providing a one-to-one social welfare support service, weekly social trips, and health seminars led by some of London’s top experts on HIV & Ageing.
Contact Clive for more information.
"30% of people with HIV in the UK are aged 50 or over. In some London boroughs that’s probably nearer 50%."
‘The Mayor’s Team London project is supporting us in encouraging older people to volunteer with us as Community Buddies – please contact
