The Clare Project is taking part in the ‘Towards Zero’ community programme which aims to reduce HIV transmission in West Sussex.

The project aims to:

  • Improve the uptake and accessibility of HIV testing and PrEP for the TNBI community.
  • Improve awareness within the TNBI community and the healthcare professionals serving them, of HIV testing, PrEP and effective barrier methods.
  • Provide insight into the health and healthcare needs of the TNBI community around sexual health and HIV to inform future service commissioning.

We are looking for a transgender and/or nonbinary person who is living with HIV to provide 30 paid hours of lived experience advice and support to our project team, throughout June-December 2024, with the possibility of future involvement and professional development opportunities.

This role can either be community-facing and involve directly interviewing, supporting and training healthcare professionals and community members, and/or anonymously through 1:1 advice sessions with the project lead.

Essential Criteria:

  • Living with HIV in Sussex and from the trans and/or non-binary community, aged 18+.
  • Available for 30hrs of Community Involvement Activity between June 2024-December 2024, approximately 6hrs per month, including induction/training.

  • Able to be paid monthly via invoice or PAYE, at a rate of £16.80ph.

  • Have lived experience and/or intersecting identities such as: including neurodivergence, disabilities, Black and/or a Person of Colour (sometimes referred to as BAME or Racially Minoritised), care experienced and/or aged 50+.

Please note it is not an essential criteria to have a lot of knowledge on HIV and/or sexual health, or the Towards Zero project, as this will be included in induction.
