Currently there are around 10-12 children and young people with HIV living across Wales and treated across Liverpool, Cardiff and Swansea Hospitals. Since 2014 CHIVA has been funded by BBC Children in Need Wales to deliver advocacy and support in clinics and run 3 peer support meet up days a year. CHIVA staff also support young people with home visits and liaison with schools or other agencies where appropriate.
Each time the group meets for a peer support meet up they have an HIV related workshop with two CHIVA staff members, followed by a meal and a fun social activity, including the Dr Who Experience, adventure golf in Cardiff and two surfing trips to the South Wales coast.
Thank you to BBC Children in Need Wales for continuing to fund this work.
