0

HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) is relaunching a support group for gay and bisexual men aged 18 and over, who are living in and around Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. The LADS Café meets up every Tuesday from 2.00pm – 5.00pm, as well as the first Saturday of each month from 12.30pm – 2.30pm.

The group will be based at THT’s centre in Wellington and aims to provide gay and bisexual men with the opportunity to socialise, share experiences, and provide mutual support. THT can also provide information and advice around HIV and sexual health, and direct men towards services available in the region, including counselling and testing clinics. In Shropshire, THT runs an HIV testing and full sexual health screening service by appointment every Tuesday from 2.00pm – 5.00pm.

Lotte Hakeman, Centre Manager for THT in Shropshire said: “This group will provide a safe, supportive and confidential environment for gay and bisexual men. We hope the LADS Café will be seen as the first port of call for men who want to meet like-minded people and confidentially discuss issues like sexuality, relationships and sexual health. If you’d like information or support, or if you’d just like to meet more people locally, please come along.”
