Money, poverty and support

The issue: 

The majority of people living with HIV are well enough to work, but many are held back by stigma and discrimination in the job market. The minority who are unable to work or have extra costs associated with their disability may need benefits, but obtaining benefits is complicated and can be intimidating. 

What we do: 

NAT researches the impact of policy change on benefits and employment and responds fast to Government proposals that will affect people living with HIV. We also offer guidance and information for people working in the benefits system, people living with HIV and their advocates to ensure that people can access support they need and are entitled to.
