Time to Shine


Herts Aid receives funding from Gilead Community Grants for “Time for me to Shine” project specifically designed for people living with HIV.

Herts Aid is running a 5 week personal development project this autumn.

The programme, called “Time for me to Shine” will include workshops covering

  • CV building
  • Interview skills
  • Confidence building
  • Disclosure
  • How to set up a small business
  • Business planning
  • Taking a product to market

The project aims to provide people living with HIV with the support and mentoring they require to take steps back into employment or into their own small businesses. At the end of the programme, participants will be equipped with the necessary tools to turn their dreams into concrete reality.

Lindsey Davis, HIV Support lead for Herts Aid said “Many of our service users have the desire to return to work or start up a small home enterprise, but just don’t know where to start.

We believe that with the right support and mentoring to build their confidence and skills they will be enabled to take the next steps needed towards re-empowerment.”

The program will be available to anyone living with HIV in Hertfordshire and will be free of charge.

Attendance is required at all 5 sessions. Dates for 2016 are:-

  • 6th October
  • 13th October
