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.
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.
