Positive Voices consists of a team of volunteers who provide informative talks and sessions in education, corporate, public sector and other organisations about their personal experiences of living with HIV.

We provide an opportunity to hear directly from someone living with HIV, to ask questions, and to improve your knowledge of HIV and sexual health.

We operate in:

  • London
  • Brighton and West Sussex
  • Glasgow

Why book a Positive Voices talk?

Text

HIV can affect anyone. More than 103,800 people are living with HIV in the UK, with over 7,260 unaware that they have HIV, and over 4,000 testing positive for HIV each year. 

Knowledge of HIV is often based on the AIDS crisis in the 1980s and 1990s rather than the realities of living with HIV in the 21st century.

Because of outdated information, people living with HIV can face prejudice and discrimination in educational settings, in the workplace and from their family and friends.

Positive Voices fitted wonderfully into our PSHE programme. The speaker was so engaging and charismatic, and delivered such a powerful message to our pupils.

We've been working on reducing the stigma around HIV, but hearing the message directly from people living with HIV creates a huge impact. Staff came up to us after the event to say how great the speakers were.
