The Crescent is a support service for both those living with and those affected by HIV, their families, friends and support networks. It has been providing services for almost 25 years, reaching out to the community using support workers, and volunteers / peer educators, to promote safe sexual practices in all areas of the community, and provide support to those that need it, when they need it most.
It provides emotional, and practical support, in a safe and completely confidential environment. It provides free testing for HIV with results in 60 seconds, and free testing for Chlamydia as well.
This vital service is under threat of closure as its funding is being withdrawn in June without a specific replacement service being in place.
Hundreds of vulnerable people are at risk as services vital to their physical and emotional wellbeing are being withdrawn without consideration of the effects both short term, and long term.
It needs your help as the more people that support the campaign to prevent the closure the better, it’s a final chance for the people to have their say and stop this now. Please please leave a message of support, it will be treated in the strictest confidence with only your comments used, never your identity.
Thanking you for your support,
The friends of the Crescent.
