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.

David - Counselling

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

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.

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.

Abimbola- First Point

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

Sarah - Counselling

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

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 didn’t feel rushed.

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.

Joe - Mentoring

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

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.

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.
