The organisation

Terrence Higgins Trust  was set up in 1982 following the death of its namesake Terry Higgins, who was one of the very first people to die of an AIDS-related illness in the UK. As an organisation we are always aiming to ensure we are always meeting the needs of people affected by HIV and poor sexual health.

An enthusiastic and self-motivated health and support worker is needed to work as part of the West Sussex Community HIV Service.

You will project manage Terrence Higgins Trusts Health Trainer service to people living with HIV (PLWHIV) in West Sussex. The aim of this role is to improve the health and wellbeing of PLWHIV: by increasing their level of health and treatments knowledge, and strengthening their understanding of self management; by identifying and engaging with groups and/or individuals from targeted communities, in particular; people from African and Caribbean communities, young people, gay and bisexual men, sex workers and those at risk of HIV and poor sexual health.
