Peer Support Training
Peer training and support is provided on an ongoing basis to ensure people with lived experience are engaged in opportunities to enhance, improve and gain new skills.
Peer support is provided through outreach and direct services. Accessing mainstream services as a member of the ACB community who uses illicit drugs ranges from frustrating to impossible due to persistent conditions such as racism, stigma, and systemic underservice. These conditions are being compounded by the intersections of poverty, mental illness, violence, homelessness, criminalization, racialized homophobia and transphobia, the war on people who use drugs, and on people involved with sex work. Peers are trained on an ongoing basis to arm them with the necessary tools to provide services and support to vulnerable, and hard to reach populations.
B.C.A.P works to create culturally relevant outreach, prevention and support services for people infected with, affected by, or at risk of contracting HIV.
With more than 3,000 Black people living with HIV/AIDS in Ontario and tens of thousands more at risk, we depend on your support. We’ve made great gains in the fight against HIV/AIDS in our community, but we can’t celebrate yet.
