Spend time building peer relationships
The Alongside You Youth Programme is for 11-18 yrs who are aware of the HIV diagnosis in the family. Other young people have their own group within the outings programme. Events includes both day outings and an annual residential weekend on an adventure activity site. The weekend and regular outings provide an opportunity for strong peer relationships to be established with those in similar situations and freedom to be open about HIV and medication. Families report of increased confidence for their young people and we hear of friendships continuing into adulthood. Many of which, we hear, continue into adulthood.
