Terrence Higgins Trust is a charity registered in England and Wales (288527) and a company limited by guarantee (1778149), and a registered charity in Scotland (SC039986).



Our members are an important and valued part of our democratic structures. They elect trustees to our board and provide input to those trustees to ensure we’re always travelling in the right direction and providing the best possible service.

One way you can get involved in our work is by becoming a member.



Our board of trustees is responsible for setting the overall strategy and direction of the charity, and for ensuring Terrence Higgins Trust uses its resources effectively in pursuit of our mission.

Trustees are unpaid members of the charity who are either elected to the board by the other members or invited to join the board because of their specialist knowledge.

The executive team


The executive team works closely with the board of trustees to help turn our vision and strategy into a reality. They are responsible for the day-to-day management of the charity.

Articles of Association


The charity is governed by its Articles of Association. This document sets out the charity’s objects, and the framework within which we must operate to achieve these.

The Articles of Association are approved by the Charity Commission, and are regularly reviewed by the trustees to ensure they remain up to date.

Annual report and financial statements


The trustees’ report and financial statements are published each year. They give an overview of the charity’s financial performance and position as well as outlining the charity's key achievements and activities in the year.

The charity's accounts are prepared in line with accounting standards and are subject to a full audit.

Gender Pay Gap Report


Terrence Higgins Trust had fewer than 250 employees on the 2018 snapshot date and so is not required to publish an annual gender pay gap report. However, we believe it is important to gather and analyse the data to keep track on the gender pay gap on an annual basis and have chosen to publish our report voluntarily.
