We provide support for people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS, and we work to challenge the stigma and prejudice which can affect people living with HIV, and to challenge sexism, homophobia and transphobia.We deliver Sex and Relationships Education to young people, training to organisations and work in the BAME community and people with learning disabilities and difficulties around all aspects of sexual health and relationships.

Quotes from teachers

“DHIVerse has provided invaluable support to the staff and students at Huntingdonshire Regional College.The staff are enthusiastic, flexible, knowledgeable and always willing to help.  Nothing has been too much trouble for them – they have provided free staff training, student sexual health awareness talks, run a regular stall in college providing students with advice, information and contraception resources and they have even created a bespoke workshop for us on Sex and Relationship Education including the effects of technology and pornography. In fact, we cannot thank them enough as high quality, free, local services such as this are few and far between and I know that we could not have provided information and education on some of these issues without them.  I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.”

Joanna Grimmer – Enrichment Officer at Huntingdon Regional College
