POSITIVELY SPEAKING

 

POSTIVELY SPEAKING

 

Could you tell your own story to raise awareness of the facts of living with HIV?

 

A very exciting opportunity has arisen to join our ‘Positively Speaking’ Project.  We are seeking applications from people living with HIV who are prepared to talk about their experiences of living with HIV.

 

You will attend training, delivered at George House Trust, where you will be supported to develop your own unique story in preparation for sharing your experiences with different groups of people.  Some examples of groups we have worked with so far are school children and young people, medical professionals and professional networks.

 

As a Positive Speaker you will play a vital role in raising awareness of HIV and challenging HIV-related stigma.  George House Trust is commited to ensuring that the Undetectable = Untransmittable message reaches and is understood by the widest possible audience.  We need your help to spread this message.  This volunteer role is flexible so can work around your other commitments.

 

Interested?  Contact Rachel for more information and how to apply.
