Welcome to the Tagadere website
Tagadere is an Old English word which means ‘together’. We are the only independent volunteer run, user-led self help support group for people living with HIV in Nottinghamshire. We were delighted to become a Registered Charity on 6th May 2009.
At Tagadere we do not discriminate because of a person’s sexuality, race, religion or colour. We are a community group who provide friendship, encouragement and support for the culturally diverse HIV population of Nottinghamshire – and our support often extends further than the NG postcode.
The term ‘user led’ means that we are not dictated to by local councils or authorities; we are all volunteers representing the local HIV community who recognise and appreciate the need for an autonomous peer support group where opinions are democratically valued. We are not interested in becoming a large corporate entity; being a grassroots group operated solely by volunteers remains a crucial aspect of Tagadere.
To view a few of the many testimonials which we have received, please select the button ‘Positively Speaking – Tagadere Experiences’ on the menu to the left. These are all genuine testimonials; we have no need to fantasise and create fictitious compliments! Further information is available in the About Us section and a background to our development and progression is documented in the Tagadere History section.
