Welcome to our Respite & Training Centre

Kernow Positive Support (KPS) is a registered charity No. 1104947. We were founded in 2004. KPS was established to effect, and develop HIV support services within the county of Cornwall after the dissolution of the Bethany Trust (Bodmin), and the closure of the Cornwall AIDS Council in 2003. We have provided a well respected and excellent local service provision since our foundation. This year we celebrate our 7th Anniversary, and April 2011 sees the opening of our new and exciting respite facility; KPS Trebullom - a National Residential Retreat, Respite, Education and Training Centre, including a temporary accommodation solution for those within the Southwest peninsula with housing related needs (see Crisis Support Link above). This will be the first facility of its kind in the UK. Through our work with people with HIV we have recognised a need not only for people to have the opportunity to come to terms with this debilitating illness by attending a respite and retreat centre, there is also a need to assist in building futures for our guests and improve HIV awareness through training opportunities to the public and professionals alike.
