"Volunteering at METRO for me, enables me to help people in our community who need our help and support. Not only that, it grounds me after a day in the office, allows me to meet and interact with service users, gives me the opportunity to work with some great, driven people at METRO, and allows me to be a part of the great work METRO does. I was thrilled to see that HSBC offered a 'Pound for Pound' scheme; volunteering allows me to provide time to the organisation, but to help with much needed funding is an added bonus. If you are currently debating volunteering at METRO - do it!", Steve, host at our Pitstop Clinic.

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.
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.
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 Metroís 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 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.
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.
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.
David - Counselling
Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.
Joe - Mentoring
The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!
