Respite & Retreat Caravan

Here we take look at Body Positive Tayside's Respite Caravan. A well established Self-Help and Service Provider that has been providing an important service provision for over ten years.

Everyone benefits from a break from their everyday life - it gives us a chance to rest, to forget the daily grind and to enjoy ourselves. So isn't that just what Respite and Retreat to do?  That, and more.  People affected by HIV often live in isolation, not feeling free to share their hopes and fears with family and friends.  The Body Positive Tayside Respite Caravan located on a caravan site near the beautiful fishing village of Elie in Scotland and will offer a safe setting where friends and family can share experiences, take stock of their present situation, and find emotional strength and support in each other to continue their lives, whilst enjoying a break.
