Peer Program

TasPPL provides peer support for people who are newly diagnosed HIV positive – we provide support and service tailored to anyone who has acquired the virus. The program introduces topics such as understanding blood tests, food and nutrition, physical health, travelling with HIV, managing your work, family and social lives. We facilitate social support events such as coffee clubs, positive lunches and dinners, and HIVe, a programme which provides pantry supplies and emergency relief.

Case management

If things are getting very tough, our case managers provides direct advocacy and intervention services to help get your life back on track. This might include helping you work out a payment plan or access financial assistance with agencies such as electricity or gas companies, or sourcing rent assistance. It might also mean working that our case managers can work an advocate to help access medical or social services until you feel ready to take control back again.

We provide this help with the aim of empowering people to be independent, self-confident and able to sustain a comfortable lifestyle.
