The Blueprint: Support for young adults

Welcome to The Blueprint, a programme launched last year for young adults aged 18-25 who have grown up with HIV. We’re helping them navigate the challenges of life with HIV and build a brighter future for themselves and those around them.

The Blueprint focuses on four themes: 

  • Confidence and building self-esteem
  • Financial literacy
  • Mental health
  • HIV & me (information and support specifically around HIV) 

Each theme has been designed to provide young adults with life skills, information and support, with the chance to take part in hands-on developmental activities as individuals or as a group.

Get involved

The next group sessions will be held monthly over Zoom on:

  • Wednesday 17 January, 6-8 pm: Overview of the Blueprint & games night
  • Wednesday 21 February 6-8 pm: HIV and sharing your experiences
  • Wednesday 20 March 6-8 pm: Mental health

Abi and Thoko will also be organising one-to-one sessions where we will help you set goals and support you to reach them. We will be going into more discussion and depth, as this is something previous participants have said they benefited from.

For each of the programme pillars you will each receive a workbook to accompany your understanding and learning.

From November’s residential retreat

The programme combines group sessions via Zoom, one-to-one online support and coaching, and occasional in-person meet-ups. We understand the importance of flexibility and creating a safe and non-judgemental space that is youth friendly. 

We have selected amazing resources to help young adults identify what they want to achieve, create action plans and reach their goals.
