July 9th saw us launch the run up to the Drag Race that will be held on August 20th outside the Rose and Crown in Greenwich. The Duchess from The George and Dragon helped cut the celebratory cake, then Maxine Factor serenaded us and we then managed to avoid Nurse Metro and her infamous thermometer.
If you feel that you have what it takes to be the fastest drag on heels in SE10 then drop an email to Andrew who will be happy to register you for the big event.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sarah - Counselling
The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metroís services was amazing.
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.
David - Counselling
Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.
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.
