CHIVA are dependent on charitable grants and donations to deliver our projects.

We welcome interest from individuals and organisations who would like to undertake fundraising to support our work. If you would like a pack to support a fundraising activity please get in touch to discuss with us.

We have an ongoing fundraising need to support the delivery of our annual support camp for children with HIV which takes place each summer. Up to 100 children attend our residential camp each year, and every year we need secure the funds to run the camp in that year. Support camp offers a package of therapeutic and creative activities developed to explore growing up with HIV, to increase knowledge and understanding, enhance confidence and self esteem and for young people to develop critical peer support networks.

 “We'd heard of 'The Camp' from HIV nurses - a magical Wonderland where children disappear down a rabbit hole of self discovery and emerge more accepting of themselves and their condition… Our child had gone and a young woman re-appeared before us. She simply said: "Next year I want to go for 6 weeks." And that sentence is all you need to know about the CHIVA Camp. It is about the power of a group, the power of a space (the only space) where the secret of having HIV can be openly shared” Parent of a child who attended CHIVA support camp in 2017.

CHIVA works with clinics and families to support children to attend our support camp and covers all the costs of a child attending including travel from anywhere in the UK and Ireland.

It costs £500 for a child to attend our residential support camp for a week. If you would like to make a donation to CHIVA to support this work please donate here:
