Joan - First Point

Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.

Simon - Mentoring

By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.

Michael - Counselling

I gained a huge amount of help from the counselling service and would like to thank the service for offering so much support.

Ebere - First Point

I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.

Joe - Mentoring

The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!

Abimbola- First Point

It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.

Kwasi - Mentoring

During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.

Sarah - Counselling

The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metroís services was amazing.

Peter- First Point

I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.

David - Counselling

Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.

METRO is always looking for talented people of all backgrounds for a variety of interesting roles, as employees and volunteers.
Support comes in many forms, money is one of them! We'd very much appreciate a donation to help us continue our work.
