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.

Volunteering at Terrence Higgins Trust

Today, volunteers continue to be a huge and integral part of the work that we do across the UK. Volunteers help out in most teams within the charity and many services could not be provided without their help. In 2019 alone, volunteers gave the charity over 26,500 hours of their time.

Help us build our vision of a world where people with HIV live healthy lives free from prejudice and discrimination, and good sexual health is a right and reality for all.

Anyone aged from 18 to 80 can volunteer with us as long as they fulfil the role description and meet the volunteer requirements. We’re unable to accept volunteers aged 80 or over for insurance reasons. 

If you are successful in your application you will need to complete a volunteer induction and GDPR course. You may also need to attend role specific training and a safeguarding webinar, depending on your role. You must complete your training before you can begin volunteering with us.

If you are unsuccessful in your application you can discuss other volunteering opportunities with the Volunteer Office.

Some volunteer roles may have rolling recruitment. If we receive sufficient applications we reserve the right to close recruitment early. We therefore advise you to apply for any roles you are interested in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
