Body & Soul is a charity promoting the respect, dignity and wellbeing of children, teenagers, adults and families living with and affected by HIV. Our charity’s approach is grounded in responsive, expert programming with the aim of maximising choices and pathways for achievement and continuous learning in an environment of aspiration.
We believe that everyone has the right to live happily and healthily. We aim to counteract the devastation of an HIV positive diagnosis with strategies to reduce isolation and stress, improve health and wellbeing, promote active lives and create a voice for human rights.
Our centre is a safe place that helps everyday people deal with the everyday challenges that HIV sets before them and the people they love.
Experience has taught us that HIV can exert a powerful impact on all aspects of
the lives of people living with and closely affected by the virus. However our experience has also taught us that with the right interventions at the right time, resilience and hope can be developed. The intricacies of life that seem insurmountable can be overcome and transformed beyond belief.
We are unequivocally committed to a world free of stigma, and prejudice where HIV is no longer discriminated against and where everyone has access to treatment, love and care.
