How to join Lunch Positive & come along for your first visit

The lunch club is provided for all people with HIV and everyone is welcome.

Please get in touch if you would like to ask any questions or if you would like to come along  see what the lunch club does. You can phone us on 07846 464384 or contact us using the website contact form.

If you decide that would like to join the lunch club, there is a very simple and straightforward referral process. You can be self-referred by dropping in to see us any Friday at the lunch club, or you can ask your clinician or other worker for a referral.

We want to do everything we can to help you come along to the lunch club, and we know that coming to something new can sometimes feel uncertain.
If you ask us, we can do lots of things to help. You can call us before your first visit and we’ll explain what happens at the lunch club and what to expect, and answer any questions you have. We can also arrange to meet you outside the venue, or somewhere close by, to talk to you over tea or coffee before you come in to the lunch club.  You are also very welcome to bring a friend or supporter with you if this helps. If these things help, please ask – we want to do everything to make things feel easier.

When you do come to the lunch club, we have a team of peer volunteers who are here to make you welcome and spend time with you.
