- Ambitious: We believe communities and individuals can change their own lives. We push ourselves and others to make this happen.
- Honest: We are accountable to our communities, donors and funders. We work with integrity, transparency and efficiency. We communicate clearly and responsibly.
- Different: We support, respect and value each other and work without prejudice. We are radical professionals, proud of our diversity, and united by a common cause.
- Independent: We are an independent charity, rooted in the communities we serve. We use our insight to innovate and inspire change in policies, services and minds.
We are the largest voluntary sector provider of HIV and sexual health services in the UK, running services out of local centres across Great Britain.
The range and availability of services provided at any one centre depends on the needs of the community we serve and the requirements of our funders (usually local authorities and NHS organisations, sometimes voluntary funders).
Our local services fall into three areas: long term condition management; health improvement and clinical services.
