Finding Your Feet

For newly diagnosed

An HIV diagnosis can be frightening and bewildering. Take time out to find out more about living with HIV from expert speakers, including people living with HIV.


“The group has helped me cope with HIV and to know that I am not alone, and HIV is not the end of the world.”
“When I was first visited, I was seriously thinking of suicide, but the support from Blue Sky Trust has turned my life around.”
“Blue Sky Trust gave me life cos I thought I was the only one with HIV in the world but when I came to the group, I found people with HIV my own age and it made me more confident.”


If you are living with HIV and you want to make a difference, get in touch and tell us your ideas. You might want to contribute to our blog, give us your feedback, help deliver training or share your story.
