Recently Diagnosed Groups
SHAPES offers a free programme of interactive workshops that help anyone living in Camden and Islington that has been newly diagnosed 'Take Control' of their condition, 'Learn' how to get the support they need and 'Connect' with other people living with HIV.
Run over a single weekend, groups are peer-led by trained staff and volunteer mentors so provide participants with the opportunity to share experiences; form new friendships and support networks; and meet others who are also recently diagnosed. These groups address what it means to live with HIV, including accepting a diagnosis, understanding HIV and medications, sex and relationships, and accessing services. Sign Up Now
