The Team

At The Hepatitis C Trust almost all members of staff have, or have cleared, the virus.

We believe that people with personal experience of hepatitis C are best placed to support those living with the virus, for example on the helpline. These people are also best placed to advocate on behalf of the hepatitis C community with politicians, service providers and commissioners.

Being patient led can be challenging for us as an organisation because people living with hepatitis C can have periods when they are very unwell, particularly on treatment. But it also means that the atmosphere at The Trust is extraordinarily passionate, positive and mutually supportive.

The team has grown from a couple of volunteers working every available hour to an ever expanding group of people whose breadth of expertise and understanding of the issues puts us in a unique position within the field of hepatitis C.
