Launch of our HIV Rapid Testing in selected Pharmacies across Cumbria

Saturday marked the beginning of the National HIV Prevention Week and we are pleased to announce the launch of our 'In the Community' project which will enable people to get a rapid HIV test done in selected local pharmacies around the county. This project won't just last for this week though, we have been funded by Public Health England to provide this service till November 2017.

Barriers around sexual abuse and violence services in Cumbria.

We are looking for people to take our Barriers around Sexual Abuse and Violence survey.

We have been commissioned by the Police and Crime Commission of Cumbria to find out what the barriers are for LGBT people who have been victims of sexual abuse and violence. We would like to know specifically what barriers you or someone you know may have come across and what the end result was. If you would please fill out the next few questions as honestly as possible, bearing in mind all results are anonymous. We would like to hear about LGBT stories and from those in the LGBT community, though friends and family who helped them through this may also fill this survey out.

Click here to answer the survey: CLICK HERE

We would like to thank you for your participation and remember that if you need any help or support around this issue to contact The Bridgeway: 0808 118 6432

We are always looking for new volunteers to get involved with our organisation and the many projects within. We have a range of different opportunities for you all to get involved in.

We don't look at volunteering like most places do, we want to know what you want from us, not what we want from you.
