Positive Help

Details
Positive Help understands that living with HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C can be challenging.

You may have bouts of ill health or times when the practicalities of getting to vital hospital appointments and continuing day to day activities can be all too overwhelming.

That is why our Supportive Transport service is here to help you and your family.

Our volunteer drivers can provide you with free, door-to-door transport. All you need to do is get in touch with us and request a lift at least two days in advance.

Positive Help’s team of volunteer drivers provide lifts to medical care and treatment, social care appointments and activities for people affected by HIV/ Hep C.

If you are affected by either HIV or Hep C, volunteers can help you get to these appointments, collect and deliver prescriptions to your home and we can also help with food shopping trips. We can also offer help with lifts to nursery, school and after school clubs for your children.

If you are HIV or Hep C positive, live in Edinburgh or the Lothians and are struggling to keep hospital appointments and maintain your drug regime please don’t hesitate to contact us by phoning us on 0131 225 4766 or by emailing us. We will endeavour to meet your request.

We ask that any request for lifts include as much notice as possible so that we have time to match you with a volunteer driver. However, we will do our best to meet any last minute requests. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee lifts to meet every request – it will depend on the number of volunteers that are available.
