Nottingham Floating support (HIV/Aids)
This service provides a range of support to people diagnosed as HIV positive, including re-enablement, crisis and ongoing aupport, depending on each customer’s personal circumstances and needs.
A support worker is allocated who offers advice and help in a range of areas, including:
- advice on budgeting and managing debt
- accessing primary health care or specialist HIV heatlh care
- benefit claims and form-filling
- accessing local services and community resources.
We provide support to customers who are living in their own homes, in hospital or about to be discharged and those who are facing eviction or are at risk of homelessness. Support can last up to two years, although many people develop the confidence and skills to live independently in a shorter time.
Crisis support is also offered at a weekly drop-in every Wednesday from 10.30 – 2.30 – visit www.tagadere.org.uk for details or contact us on 020 3535 5142.
