Advocacy / Signposting
Staff within the HIV Support team will be happy to advocate with or on behalf of service users subject to need. This can be of use to service users who are finding it difficult to approach another service, or who are not getting what they need from a particular service.
Moreover, the team are well networked with other services, organisations and professionals and can signpost service users to services which are more appropriate to their needs. This may include signposting to housing services, benefit agencies or counselling services for example.
