African Health Project – Life Skills & Wellbeing


Our Life Skills and Wellbeing project helps Africans living in Scotland to achieve increased confidence and skills by enabling better access to training and employment, leading to healthier lifestyles and finances.

We also offer HIV awareness training to staff in community organisations, universities, colleges and schools.

Through one-to-one and group work, we provide opportunities for meeting others in a similar situation and gaining the knowledge and skills to participate as an active member of a community. We offer self management training to improve your self awareness and boost your confidence and self-esteem.

If you are an African living with HIV, we can work with you to increase your skills and experience; access training, education, volunteering and placements; convert qualifications into the UK equivalent; prepare and help you to find a job; and help you with budgeting and financial management.

All of our activities aim to help you be self-reliant. Our one-to-one work can also help you to access crisis support and get you back on track

We offer the following courses:

  • Elementary food hygiene
  • Healthy cooking
  • Self management
  • Mental health awareness
  • Blood borne viruses awareness
  • Fabric painting
  • Talk2 (Sexual Health and relationship training for parents)
  • Ageing well with HIV
