Positive Help was set up in 1989 in response to requests for day to day help from those living with HIV in the Edinburgh area. Since then, our services have developed to meet the changing needs and increasing number of our clients. Our original purpose remains the same, though the range of people we support has broadened. We now give free practical support to people living with HIV and Hepatitis C in and around Edinburgh.

Our charitable objectives are: “to relieve the suffering and distress of adults and children in Edinburgh and the Lothian area who are infected or affected by HIV/ AIDS and Hepatitis C and their families, and carers”.

Without the support of our dedicated volunteers and our generous donors and funders, we simply could not provide our range of life-changing services.
