Sahir House support services are for people living with HIV in the Merseyside area.
There are also services available to people who are affected by HIV. If you wish to use services you can self-refer or be referred via a health and social care service provider. All support services are confidential and after an assessment with a case worker they will direct you to the areas of support to help you live well, informed and independently with HIV.
There are many areas of support including: advice, guidance and advocacy, community based assistance, counselling, therapy support and referral to welfare rights/benefits advice, social work support, housing and HIV community nursing care.
Clare is the Volunteer Coordinator for Terrance Higgins Trust and will be working in partnership with Sahir House to deliver volunteering support projects to people living with HIV in Merseyside.
Her role is to set up support networks and offer training and development opportunities to both volunteers and service users within Sahir house and Terrence Higgins Trust.
The People for People project has enabled to provide emotional and practical support to more people living with HIV (PLHIV) by recruiting a good balance of volunteers from all areas of the region. Volunteers have access to accreditation for their training through the provision of the Terrence Higgins Trust OCN Level 3 Volunteering Award along with other professional development courses.
