Let's be heard across London

Are you living in London and want to make change?

Our London Activist Network aims to bring people living with HIV together to make change where it matters in London. Whether it’s influencing policymakers to create change or shaping health services to ensure the experiences of people living with HIV are recognised.

Being a member of our London Activist Network means you’ll be part of this meaningful change.

You’ll meet with the network regularly, and National AIDS Trust will be here every step of the way to support you in any activist opportunities that you choose to pursue.

Can I join?

If you’re living with HIV and live in the London area, yes! You can join. Register your interest here!

If this isn’t you, but you still want to get involved with our campaigning work, please consider joining our general mailing list here!

If you have any questions or issues, please email george.westwood@nat.org.uk

The network

Join our group to demand equality and drive progress in HIV on the topics that matter to you

We need your voice to make us speak louder. The Activist Network allows you to add your voice to our movement -enabling us all to fight harder for the rights of people affected by HIV and drive improvements in HIV education, prevention and testing.

What does being a member involve?

Being a member involves taking quick, simple e-campaign actions to challenge injustice. National AIDS Trust identifies current issues, contacts you with background information and resources, tells you what you can do, and you take action on as much or as little as you like. 

We select the current issues by doing our own research, listening to people living with HIV and talking to our partner organisations. This ensures that we are tackling the issues that matter the most.

Can I join?

Yes! Anyone living in the UK with the desire to bring about change can join. When you sign up you'll start getting our campaign updates immediately.

To join the network, please go to our newsletter signup and tick the 'activism opportunities' box (you can tick others too!). We'll add you to our network, and start getting in touch when we launch new actions.

If you have any questions please email george.westwood@nat.org.uk

The Activist Network is run as a virtual network and your details will not be passed on.

Urge the Government to fund an end to HIV by 2030

On World AIDS Day last year, the Government pledged to end new cases of HIV by 2030 and improve support for people living with HIV.

An HIV Action Plan was promised to deliver on this ambition. 

We now need to make sure the Government includes money in the upcoming Autumn budget to fund the Action Plan. 

This is where you can help

This action is now closed but please sign up to the HIV Activist Network to find out more about our campaigning work. 

Too often HIV stigma has been rife across the police force. This can't go on.

Too often HIV stigma has been rife across the police force. This can't go on. 

Our police have a duty to stay educated about HIV. But too often police forces have failed in this duty, with stigmatising and dehumanising behaviour still commonly reported, and unfounded fears around HIV rife among officers.

But we need to go further and get police forces up and down the country to act now. That’s where you come in. 

Write to your MP today and ask them to make sure your local police force is tackling HIV stigma, rather than perpetuating it.
