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 give free practical support to people living with HIV and Hepatitis C throughout the Lothians.

With the support of our dedicated volunteers and our generous donors and funders, we provide our range of life-changing services.  Our aim is to quickly respond to those in need and with the ever changing situation of COVID-19 affecting everyone our services are in greater need than ever before.  Details of how we have operated throughout the pandemic can be seen here.
