We look at Scotland‘s leading charity supporting people living with HIV and Hepatitis C

Waverley Care
is Scotland's leading charity supporting people living with HIV and Hepatitis C.

Someone can be living with HIV or Hep C for years and not experience symptoms. If you think you might be at risk of having contracted HIV or Hep C from unprotected sex or sharing needles when injecting drugs, it is important that you get tested.

Knowing if you are positive will help you avoid passing the virus on to other people and also allow you to start treatment. The sooner you start treatment, the better. You can get a test through your GP or your local GUM clinic.

Waverley Care is there to support you through testing and after, if you test positive. They have many support services for people living with HIV or Hepatitis C, including help with benefits and housing, understanding your treatment and staying on medication. They can also introduce you to other people who are living with HIV/Hep C and can understand what you may be going through.

Call 0131 558 1425 to talk about getting tested or, if you are living with HIV/Hep C, about how they can support you.
