New Funding for Counselling Services

Hi all,

Apologies for not updating our blog recently, be assured we are busy working in the background to ensure those living or affected by HIV get the support they need.

We are very pleased to announce that we have received generous support from both the Hertfordshire Community Foundation (HCF) and the Make A Difference Trust (MAD) to fund our afternoon and evening counselling services for those living with, affected by, or at risk of acquiring HIV.

The service was officially launched by our Patron, Alex Mayer MEP on Friday in time for World Health Day, a link to the coverage is here http://www.stalbansreview.co.uk/news/16151356.new-hiv-support-group-at-the-crescent-st-albans/

We are now  in our 30th year supporting the community and are thrilled  to have received this support from both MAD and HCF, it will make an immeasurable difference to those accessing services at the Crescent.

There will be more to follow, dates for our next music event, a concert, a street collection and also our regular “Sizzles” with our wonderful friends at “Bunnings” will follow shortly.

Thanks as ever for your support,

The Crescent Team
