University is a big, exciting place. But life isn’t always easy. We’re here to give you support when you need us, care about the things you care about, and fight for you when need someone in your corner. Our job is to make sure you feel supported every day.
We live by four promises. Four reasons our cafes, bars, shops and gym feel different to those elsewhere: we put every penny of profit back into your community, we’re always better value than the high-street, we’re at the centre of your campus community, and we choose planet over profit.
Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) is the leading HIV and sexual health charity in the UK working to reduce the spread of HIV and to promote good sexual health. We campaign for greater understanding of HIV and sexual ill-health, providing services across England, Wales and Scotland.
Positive Voices speakers share their personal stories of living with HIV to a range of audiences across the UK. Training and support are provided to all volunteers on an ongoing basis, and many find the process to be empowering, building confidence developing a range of skills. It is however important to emphasise that confronting and sharing your experiences can feel vulnerable; it is an emotional process that can be challenging for some. For this reason, we invite all shortlisted applicants to attend an informal interview, and to shadow at least one Positive Voices talk before attending training
Ideally we’d like volunteers agree to 12 month commitment to the programme after completing training. This allows them to get the most out of the training, however we can be flexible with this and
welcome discussions around availability and commitment
