CNWL Surrey Sexual Health and HIV Services appoint HIV Peer Support Worker

9 July 2024

CNWL Surrey Sexual Health and HIV Services is delighted to announce that a HIV Peer Support Worker is joining the team of professionals.   The role of the HIV Peer Support Worker is to offer peer support to people living with HIV and to help service users identify goals and develop personal recovery/ self-management plans. 

The role of the peer support worker in an HIV context is to support people to attain the recovery of  life after HIV diagnosis and through sharing wisdom from their own experiences.  Peer Support Workers inspire hope and belief that recovery is possible in others.

The Peer Support Worker will meet with service users on a 1-1, group or drop-in basis providing ongoing support and will work with allied colleagues to develop and deliver a varied offer of peer support activities to support the service users of the Surrey HIV service. They will promote the use of a ‘coaching’ role to support service users in identifying goals and developing personal recovery/ self-management plans

This is an exciting new service to Surrey which has been funded by Surrey County Council Public Health Team.
