Positive Help was set up in 1989 in response to requests for day to day assistance from those living with HIV in the Edinburgh area. Since then, our services have developed to meet the changing needs and increasing number of our clients. Our original purpose remains the same, though the range of people we support has broadened. We now give free practical support to adults and families living with HIV and Hepatitis C in and around Edinburgh. Our services are offered by volunteers and we have a small staff team dedicated to ensuring that volunteers and service users are supported.
