Bars and venues

We’re proud of our close relationships with bars and venues across Scotland 

Partner with Waverley Care to ensure we meet the needs of the people and communities who need us most. 

How we can support you

We can offer training and information sessions for your staff alongside information about HIV, hepatitis and sexual health.

We will provide you with fundraising materials, such as collection tins, posters and various donation methods such as text-to-donate stickers, QR codes and leaflets.

 

How to fundraise for us

By fundraising for us, we can advocate for people living with HIV and tackle HIV stigma across Scotland. Here are some ideas to get you started.

  • Host an event in aid of Waverley Care – this could be a quiz, bingo, drag brunch, movie night or maybe even with a sing-a-long for the musical fans.
  • Place our collection tins in your venue.
  • Display our posters across your venue and toilets.
  • Share information about Waverley Care on your social media platforms to raise awareness of our partnership.

 

Our friends

We have strong relationships with organisations across Scotland who have proudly supported our work for many years.

In Edinburgh, we are grateful for the support of LGBTQ+ bars across the city, including Planet Bar and Kitchen, CC Blooms, The Street, Habana and The Regent, who have all played a vital role in our fundraising over the years. Alongside venues such as Kafe Kweer, these organisations have helped us to provide information about HIV treatment and support, greater access to testing and condoms to the wider public.

CC Blooms owners Mitch & Tim were both teenagers in the 80's when they came out - smack bang in the midst of the HIV & AIDS crisis and when the fear surrounding the disease was paramount. The incredible work of Waverley Care was known far and wide, so when the couple moved back to Edinburgh and bought over CC's in 2008 it seemed to be the obvious choice of charity to support, a charity close to their hearts and many others.

In Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, we’re proud of our close relationship with MAC. Alongside sales of their Viva Glam lipsticks, MAC have hosted fundraising events and activities in their stores.
