Leicester City Council has reviewed the services it commissions for people who are HIV positive and their carers. The review has found that only a small amount of service delivery is about adult social care need and that the majority of the support delivered by organisations such as LASS relates to advice on housing, welfare benefits, and general support.
There is provision in the city for this type of support but this is not specific to those with HIV. Therefore, Leicester Council are proposing to commission a new service that improves accessibility to information advice and guidance for HIV positive people and their carers.
The council would like your views about their proposals for a new offer for people who are HIV positive and their carers who live in Leicester City. Many of our service users have completed a brief survey which will be sent to the council tomorrow (Tuesday, 16th February). As an individual, as a service user reading our blog we invite you to comment on Leicester City Councils proposal for a new information, advice and guidance service for people with HIV.
