Terrence Higgins Trust
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


The type of tasks / activities you could be involved with includes:

 Providing a personal perspective on living with HIV to a range of online audiences

 Providing short, factual approved presentations on HIV and/or Terrence Higgins Trust

 Raising awareness of issues related to living with HIV

 Representing people living with HIV at meetings and other events to ensure their needs are represented

 Design, delivery and evaluation of Positive Voices activitie

Who will the volunteers be working with?
Terrence Higgins Trust Staff
Training & Support:
 All Terrence Higgins Trust volunteers are expected to complete online induction training (e-learning)
 Completion of ‘storytelling with passion and purpose’ training (via zoom or in person) delivered by a professional speaking coach.
This includes:
o Two 3-hour small group training sessions
o One 2-hour group practice session
o A 1-hour one-to-one coaching session
o A 2-hour ‘gala’ to present your story publicly for the first time (friends and family welcome)
 Further training can be provided based on individual needs.

Time commitment

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
