Join Waverley Care’s Community Panel!

Help us shape our work and improve policies for those affected by blood borne viruses

We are looking for people living with HIV in Scotland to join our new Community Panel. This panel will play a crucial role in shaping our work, and informing policies across Scotland that affect people living with HIV.

About the Community Panel

No one understands more about HIV, and the challenges that come with it, than people living with HIV. These unique experiences and knowledge can’t be represented by healthcare professionals or policy makers alone.

This is why we are setting up Waverley Care’s new Community Panel. Through the Community Panel we want to bring together people living with HIV to shape our work and to help to inform policies in Scotland that affect people living with HIV. This can include policies in areas such as stigma, care and human rights, as well as on day-to-day issues like housing. The panel will also play a really important role in shaping our work on reducing HIV transmission, and developing training and resources for groups like healthcare workers.


What is involved?

By being part of the panel, you can come along to group meetings, or you can share your thoughts individually with us. We want you to tell us what matters to you, in a way that is right for you.

You don’t need to know anything about policy to take part – all training and support will be provided. Your involvement in the panel will be reimbursed.

We are committed to including everyone in a way that works for them – this could include sharing your experiences individually rather than in a group setting; or having face-to-face conversations or over the phone if digital meetings don’t suit you. We can discuss these, and other options, which would make taking part easier for you.
