Peer Support

If you would like help to stay HIV negative or simply would like to explore questions related to your sex-life with a peer and in a relaxed environment, One of the Metro Centre's award-winning peer support services could be for you. Each programme lasts about 5 months (though short term versions are also available). Participants are paired with trained mentors and meet every 2 or so weeks to share views and experiences that help participants have a happier and healthier sex life and a great sense of well-being.


MetroSafe is for gay and bisexual men of all ages. Contact James or Rob for more information.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sarah - Counselling

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

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.

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.
