Become a BGF Client

To be eligible to become a BGF client, you must provide medical evidence confirming your HIV diagnosis and be living in NSW or SA. 

You can either refer yourself or be referred by someone else. All you have to do is make an appointment with us or register over the phone.

To access all of our services, please feel free to download this referral form and medication request form or call us on 02 9283 8666 to request paper copies.

Bring the following documents to your first appointment (or post them to us if registering by phone).

  • proof of identity
  • proof of residence in NSW
  • a doctor's letter confirming your HIV status

Your responsibilities

Before you become a client of BGF, you need to sign the client service agreement at your first appointment. Please read through the service agreement to ensure that you are happy with the terms. 



Once your eligibility is confirmed, you will be allocated a case worker who works with you to identify your current needs, including the level of financial assistance you may be seeking. Financial assistance is not guaranteed because it depends on your circumstances and eligibility.
