Positive Life NSW is staffed by people living with HIV offering a range of social events, information sessions, consultations, workshops and support groups for all men and women living with HIV.
Positive Life’s Monthly Social Club invites men and women who identify as heterosexual to meet up in a safe, friendly and accepting social environment over a meal. Currently, we hold the event in an exclusive private location just 3 minutes from Sydney’s Central Station.
Positive Life offers two separate support groups for women living with HIV. For Women is an online discussion forum that welcomes all women living with HIV anywhere in NSW over 45 years of age, while The Women’s Room is an online discussion forum for all young women living with HIV under 45 years of age anywhere in NSW. These groups run on alternate months as safe and friendly spaces to connect with other women living with HIV across NSW to build your networks, share experiences and engage with a range of issues relating to our health and living with HIV.
Our [+Connect] social events welcome all people living with HIV, our partners, family and friends to get together and celebrate life face to face in a safe, accessible and friendly environment in Sydney.
Pending COVID restrictions, Positive Life will be running a heterosexual workshop in June 2022.

Our Positive Conversations group welcomes all people living with HIV in NSW to connect up with others in a safe, friendly and moderated online group via Zoom. Positive Conversations is facilitated by people living with HIV as a way to build our connections, draw on the experiences of others and increase our resilience living with HIV across NSW. Peers from rural and regional settings are especially welcome!
All people living with HIV are able to become full members of Positive Life NSW for free and receive our printed magazine Talkabout posted to you every second month. Talkabout is packed full of personal stories, news, information and events. To become a member visit the Positive Life Website and click on the ‘online Positive Life NSW membership form’ link.
Positive Life NSW has peer navigators, both men and women living with HIV, to answer your questions and ensure you have up-to-date information to navigate your HIV journey. We also receive referrals from people living with HIV, friends, family or via all allied health.
