The South West and Wales groups met up together in Bristol and 16 young people made and shared their favourite food together which incorporated an ambitious menu of dishes ranging from Eritraen curry, via tacos, to bubble tea! The group worked in small teams to prepare the meal, and when not cooking, they worked with a Lego play facilitator on a 'talking futures' activity. Group members discussed what had been happening for them since the last meet-up. One person spoke about telling a partner about their HIV status, helped by showing them our 'Life Growing Up' film, and another spoke about recently telling their school about their HIV and how this has been a big relief because they now have someone to talk to when they have any concerns.
