Terrence Higgins Trust

THT provides a number of services with the overall aim of maximising sexual health in the UK, and minimising the spread of HIV and STIs. The trust also campaigns on HIV and sexual health issues and the eradication of stigma and discrimination against those suffering from sexual health problems.

THT's London office is in King's Cross.

THT provides various services according to local need, falling into three areas: long term condition management, health improvement and clinical services.

  • Information and advice about HIV or sexual health.
  • Counselling and group support: all the service centres provide one-to-one or couples counselling sessions up for up to 12 weeks. They also run a variety of group support sessions to suit individual needs.
  • Managing your own health: they run various services for people with HIV or sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including treatment advice and courses for those who have recently had their test results.
  • Testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections: they offer walk-in HIV and STI testing services. The services are open in the evenings and you'll get your results in an hour.
  • Practical support services: help getting the most out of local health and social services, general advice on areas including housing, employment and benefits.

THT also provides services aimed specifically at young people and sex workers.

Help is available over the phone via the THT Direct helpline or on the web, or face-to-face in some centres.
