The locality has a high number of people with HIV. Living with HIV can be a difficult and unpredictable life challenge. Stigma still exists and many are socially isolated. Often people do not eat well due to low income, disability or low mood. Meeting at the lunch club provides an informal, safe and supportive space for people to share peer support, care for one another, find information and build support networks.
Our service has positive impacts on people’s health, sense of wellbeing and community.
The lunch club is provided entirely by volunteers, all who give up their time in the belief that their efforts can make a difference to the lives of people affected by HIV.
As a voluntary organisation, every penny counts, and all donations make a great difference to continuing and developing our work.
We rely on grant funding, donations from the public and business, together with contributions from clients to provide our service.
We work to a tight budget whilst making every effort to provide the highest quality of service.
We are a Registered Charity No. 1137186
