New RSE Curriculum
We’ve just made our new RSE curriculum for the 21st century available to schools for this academic year. Follow the link below to see more about what’s on offer.
Dhiverse staff are working from home during the pandemic.
Other than our HIV insti testing service, which is currently suspended, we are pleased that we are able take referrals and bookings for all our other services as normal. However, to ensure that our staff and service users remain safe, we have made some changes to how services are provided e.g. online support, support sessions provided outside (gardens, parks) weather permitting, web chat service, telephone support and of course strict social distancing and hygiene measures.
Whilst there’s no evidence to suggest that people living with HIV are at higher risk of contracting coronavirus, government advice classifies people with HIV as vulnerable. In view of this we would advise you to visit The British HIV Association website https://www.bhiva.org/coronavirus-COVID-19-and-HIV-update-from-BHIVA for more details and for regular updates. Alternatively please speak to your HIV clinician or GP if you’re unclear about your situation.
