LONDON HIV CHAPLAINCY - HELPING PEOPLE LIVE WITH THE COMPLEXITY OF HIV
Many people living with HIV suffer trauma both from being diagnosed positive and through the negative responses they have received from their faith communities. The chaplaincy walk with clients who suffer such trauma to re-establish their self-confidence, to enable clients to be able to trust again. Trust can only be built when our words match our actions.
Thanks to the MB Reckitt Trust the London HIV Chaplaincy has published a book ("Who Cares about HIV? Challenging Attitudes and Pastoral practices that Do More Harm than Good") about what the Chaplaincy has learnt since it's conception in 2003. It will be a must read for all people who offer pastoral care. Available for purchase though bookshops and on-line, details can be found on https://spckpublishing.co.uk/who-cares-about-hiv. In addition copies may be purchased at a discount for £10.00 (including postage)directly from the London HIV Chaplaincy by contacting
