Waverley Care – World AIDS Day – December 1st 2010 – Schools and Youth Resources

Waverley Care have produced excellent resource sheets that meet some of the learning outcomes within the Health and Wellbeing area of Curriculum for Excellence: www.waverleycare.org
Schools and Youth Resources

World AIDS Day provides an important focus for Waverley Care to engage with schools and youth organisations to raise awareness of HIV. The aim of this work is to minimise onward transmission and break down barriers of stigma and discrimination.

For 2010 we have developed a range of resources, all of which can be downloaded. Using true life experiences of people who are living with or affected by HIV in Scotland, these resources challenge misconceptions about HIV and encourage young people to think through the impact of stigma and discrimination on people’s lives.

Every year, we need to raise £380,000 to enable us to provide our services to people who are living with HIV and Hepatitis C in Scotland. A fundraising ideas sheet is included in the downloadable material. We hope that, as well as using our free resources, you will want to help us continue to provide that support.
To help you with your fundraising, we can provide our unique tartan HIV awareness ribbons, which can be sold or given in return for a donation. Please download our order form above or contact Karen Docwra on 0131 556 9710 or email fund@waverleycare.org .
