Welcome to the GMI Partnership website
The GMI Partnership is made up of Positive East, METRO and West London Gay Men's Project, and provides outreach and testing services to gay and bisexual men living, working or socialising in London.
Why work in Partnership?
By working together we are able to draw on over 50 years of experience of working with men who have sex with men, over 60 employees and more than 125 volunteers in the work that we do.
Our skills lie in:
As a partnership of agencies based in all regions of London, we have been able to make sure that the work we do is truly pan-London in nature.
developing, delivering and evaluating HIV prevention and sexual health promotion services targeting men who have sex with men;
recruiting, inducting, placing, training and supporting hundreds of volunteers;
working collaboratively to achieve better sexual health for men who have sex with men;
significant experience in counselling, support and outreach, and other areas like advocacy, capacity building, training, group work and clinical services.
Outreach and Condoms
GMI is funded by all London boroughs, through the London HIV Prevention Programme, to engage with gay men through outreach services in bars, clubs, saunas and other commercial venues and at special events. GMI also works with Freedoms shop to provide free condoms to gay men through our outreach and to venues across London.
For information about condom use and to purchase low-cost condoms that can be shipped directly to you,

Behaviour Change Interventions
GMI Partnership believes that alongside promoting HIV Testing and Treatment As Prevention options, behavioural interventions are key to understanding and reducing risk taking behaviour.
If you are having risky sex, whatever the reason, and are worried about your health then we can talk you through all the support options in your area. Please get in touch with GMI on 020 7160 0941 or by email.
With funding from HIV Prevention England, GMI offers rapid HIV testing at locations across London.
In addition to the testing we offer at our three agencies, we also offer weekly, monthly and pop-up testing clinics at bars, clubs, gyms and events throughout the year. To find out more about where and when to get an HIV test, visit It Starts with Me.
