Welcome to Plus health
Plus Health is a voluntary, not for profit, community project for people living with HIV, their partners, close family friends and carers. Providing FREE and confidential online peer support forms a central part of the way we work. We believe universal access to peer support is an essential part of HIV care in its wider sense. This is well recognised amongst health care professionals, support charities and community advocates alike. Using online technology people living with HIV have the opportunity to talk with a peer support volunteer who has authentic experience of life with HIV.

We’re Supporting National HIV Testing Week!
Regular testing, prompt diagnosis and treatment means that people living with HIV can expect to have the same life expectancy as their HIV negative peers. If you’ve recently received a positive diagnosis, we’re here to help every step of the way. Visit our Plus newbie page for the practical information you need.
If you’re looking for additional support, you may find our online peer support service helpful – it’s FREE and available to anyone living in the UK. Our peer mentor Chris will guide you through those first few weeks following a positive diagnosis and beyond. It’s good to talk!
Our website is arranged to mirror the individual journey we experience from initial diagnosis to older age, and everything in between. The information pages clearly set out the practical nuts and bolts information which is designed to improve knowledge and empower everyone living with HIV to enjoy healthy, long lived and fulfilling lives.
You can book FREE Skype or WhatsApp appointments online, which gives you the flexibility and convenience of arranging a peer support session that fits in with you. We recognise that privacy can be a barrier for some and working remotely can help overcome this. Your online appointments can be delivered using text, voice or video calls, which gives you flexibility and choice, so you remain in control of your privacy.
