Our services for children and young people
Since 2011, Aksept has been providing services specially for children and young people living with HIV. We are in touch with children and their parents, and organise get-togethers for this group. For older children, we organise an annual autumn get-together over four days. All of these events are for people from all over the country. We pay for travel, accommodation and food. For young adults up to the age of 30 who live in and around Oslo, we have regular social get-togethers every other month. We eat together and do a range of activities. We also have a Christmas party for children. See the dates in our calendar, or get in touch with us.
We have set up special user groups who meet regularly at Aksept or in other locations. These include our MSM group, Male Migrant group and Mothers and Children group. We also provide other services for children and young adults. In the groups, participants share their experiences and help each other with real-life problems. Get in touch if you want to join one of these groups, or would like to suggest starting a new one.
Short stays for people who don’t live in Oslo
The short stays are a great combination of chats, and physical and social activities. The stays are around three days. Travel and accommodation are free. Get in touch for more information and how to apply on tel. +47 94 02 06 01.
