This week, Waverley Care launched our brand-new look and website. As we work to end new HIV transmissions in Scotland, we know that this will help us to reach more people living with, or at risk of, HIV than ever before.
Waverley Care has changed a lot over the years as we adapted our services to the needs of people living with, or at risk of, HIV and hepatitis, but our core values have not. Not only are we non-judgemental, caring and approachable but, when looking back to our beginnings, we have also always been brave and unafraid to put our head above the parapet. We wanted our new look to reflect on the outside how we feel on the inside; to express the warmth and care our services users have come to expect, and to make Waverley Care stand out from the crowd.
Our new website is designed to be a one-stop shop for anyone who is living with, or at risk of, HIV and hepatitis, or has questions about how to take care of their sexual health. In addition to providing trustworthy information about the conditions, it also has practical details about how to access testing and treatment for HIV and hepatitis, and sexual health support. And, in the coming months, we will be introducing our new digital support services.
Also, as part of this launch, the way we talk about our services is also changing. The work carried out by our project SX providing advice and support for gay and bisexual men will now take place under the Waverley Care name. Please be reassured that only the name is changing and we remain committed to providing tailored services for the communities across Scotland who need us most.
We are very excited about what these changes mean for our work across Scotland, and we hope you are to.
