We want to end HIV transmission by 2030, and bring an end to prejudice and discrimination against people living with HIV. We want to ensure everyone living with HIV is supported and empowered to live long, healthy and happy lives. We want to tackle health inequalities wherever we see them. We’ll do this by stepping up to address the needs of key communities disproportionately impacted by HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.

We’ve got a lot still to do and by joining the Board of Trustees you can help us get there.

We’re working hard to build a Terrence Higgins Trust team that better reflects the communities we serve — our diversity is our strength and makes us more effective and reflective of the very people we work to help every day.

Our Race, Ethnicity and Cultural Heritage staff network leads change across the charity so that racially minoritised staff thrive and have their talents nurtured.

The same is true for our women, trans and non-binary, disability and neuro-diversity, and parent & carers groups.

We’re especially looking to recruit a diverse set of new trustees especially people from Black African communities, particularly women who reflect our service users and those who are impacted by HIV.

We’re keen to find trustees with key skills and experience in fundraising, business development and commerce, and other income generation areas; trustees who have a clinical background in HIV and/or sexual health. As a national charity, we are also looking for trustees with a connection to either Scotland or Wales.

By joining the Board, you will be joining a committed and dynamic community who have a keen personal investment in the work that they do. As well as providing your voice, you’ll make friends and learn a lot. And have a lot of fun along the way.

This is an exciting time for all of us who work in HIV and sexual health. It’s also a pivotal moment in the history of the epidemic. We’re committed to seeing it through to the end: no new cases of HIV in the country by 2030, a key UNAIDS target. We believe we can make it a global first in the UK.

If this sounds like a challenge you would like to take on and help improve the lives of those affected by HIV and poor sexual health, please join us. We would love to hear from you.
