Co-Exist – a new group for men living with HIV & Hepatitis C



Co-Exist - living with HIV & Hepatitis C


London Friend would like to invite gay and bisexual men living with both HIV and Hepatitis C to a discussion around the future provision of a Peer Support Group. This initial session will help assess need and inform the content and design of this new group.


This session will be held on Tuesday 8th September 6.30 – 8.00pm at London Friend, 86 Caledonian Road, N1 9DN.


The group aims to:

  • Provide support and understanding.
  • Offer a safe place and a comfortable environment.
  • Create support systems and perhaps create new friendships.
  • Share experiences and learn how to live well with co-infection.
  • Build coping mechanisms to deal with difficult feelings.
  • Breakdown the sense of isolation felt from living with co-infection.


The group will be facilitated by Joel, who for the last 16 years has worked in health and social care. Joel is also a qualified counsellor & writer for Baseline Magazine. Recently, Joel has successfully completed Hep C treatment, he has lived with HIV for 11 years, and so has a personal and professional understanding of what it means to live with co-infection.


This is open on a first come first serve basis to the first 15 people that book their place. For more information and to book your place please contact Joel:
