People Living with HIV/AIDS Victoria has moved premises.
The organisation relocated on April 18 from South Yarra to a new facility in Southbank, which it will share with HIV-positive heterosexual support group Straight Arrows.
PLWHA Victoria president Paul Kidd said it was an exciting time for the organisation.
“We have been hosted by the Victorian AIDS Council for more than two decades and it is with some sadness that we leave the Peter Knight Centre,” he said.
“But we are confident the new facility will enable greater collaboration with our colleagues at Straight Arrows.”
The move has been funded by the Victorian Department of Health to help foster cooperation between the people living with HIV bodies.
“We’re grateful to the Department of Health for making this possible,” Kidd said.
“The financial commitment is a sign of the department’s strong support of our organisations.”
The new premises will include office space for both organisations as well as counselling and meeting facilities.
Both PLWHA Victoria and Straight Arrows will continue their outreach services at the Positive Living Centre in South Yarra.
