Our tenth Annual Support camp for children and young people living with HIV, took place from July 30th - August 3rd 2019.  We had 79 children and young people coming together from across the UK and Ireland to attend the event. We had a volunteer team of 31, over half of whom are also living with HIV.

Since the first camp in 2010, we have run ‘Freedom To Be’ annually. The camp is for young people from all over the UK and Ireland and come together for 5 days. All the participants are living with HIV. During camp, there are workshops on issues related to growing up and living well with HIV, creative and outdoor activities which encourage expression, and free time to build friendships.
