THIS PRODUCTION IS INCREDIBLY PROUD TO SUPPORT WAVERLEY CARE.

Waverley Care is a unique and effective Scottish charity which changes the lives of some of the most vulnerable members of society – people living with HIV and Hepatitis C.

Waverley Care’s story over the past 25 years is, in many ways, the story of HIV and Hepatitis C in Scotland. They offer support to people at whatever stage they find themselves on their journey since diagnosis. They are there for people of all ages, sexuality, nationality or social background.

Working at a community level to educate, nurture, challenge stigma and build confidence, Waverley Care, empower people, prevent new infection and reduce the burden on NHS services.

Waverley Care’s vision is for a stigma-free Scotland where everyone living with HIV or Hepatitis C is aware, informed, getting the help they need and able to play a full and active part in their community.
