Sexual and Reproductive Health Directorate.

Terrence Higgins Trust Sexual and Reproductive Health Directorate designs and delivers high quality services throughout England, Scotland and Wales aimed at preventing sexual and reproductive ill health and supporting the needs of people living with HIV. We achieve this by working in partnership with Public Health Commissioners, Local Authorities, NHS Trusts, Health Boards and wider health and social care networks including service users. Our approach to these commitments includes maintaining relationships with strategic partners and creating new ones to increase our service offer and we continually improve outcomes in accordance with national standards and local needs and requirements.

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 can volunteer with us as long as they fulfil the role description and meet the volunteer requirements. 

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.

A courageous organisation

We were formed in 1982 following the death of Terry Higgins, one of the very first to die from an AIDS-related illness in the UK. Since then, we’ve acted boldly and passionately to meet the challenges of this ever-changing epidemic. Now as the UK’s leading HIV and sexual health charity, we are looking to take new, innovative steps to drive forward our ambition.

An ambitious organisation

We are working to end HIV transmission in the UK by 2030, help people to live with HIV and improve the nation’s sexual health. It’s a critical moment - for the first time our goals are within reach. We are working together with our beneficiaries and partners to make the end of HIV transmission a reality. 

A people organisation

Terrence Higgins Trust is its people- our service users are central to our organisation and the services we provide, at the core of our organisation, driving how we work, where we work and what we do. Our talented staff create innovative and engaging programmes, many of whom are also living with HIV. We know that equity, diversity and inclusion are critical to the work we do. We are striving to be an anti-racist, anti-sexist organisation and are committed to having a workforce with people from different backgrounds.
