All money raised in this auction will be donated to The Hepatitis C Trust.
During lockdown The Hepatitis C Trust has been collecting and delivering hepatitis C medication for patients, to ensure that they can stay safe and that nurses can focus on other priorities. The Trust are supporting both homeless and drug services for essential work and running a needle exchange from their outreach van. We are still on course to eliminate Hepatitis C by 2025.
The Hepatitis C Trust is the national charity for people with hepatitis C. It is a patient-led and patient-run organisation; most of its board, staff and volunteers have had hepatitis C themselves. It is committed to eliminating hepatitis C in the UK by 2030. Its strategy is based around pillars of better prevention, increased diagnosis and treatment for all.
It has established strong partnership models of working with substance misuse and homeless service providers across the UK. In substance misuse services, it delivers staff training, peer-led education about the importance of testing and availability of new treatments, and personal one-to-one support from initial diagnosis through to treatment. It runs a range of support services, including a confidential national helpline run by staff and trained volunteers who have all had personal experience of living with hepatitis C.
Helpline staff also provide patient-centred responses via email and run a designated prison freephone helpline service for prisoners across the UK. Its policy and parliamentary team works across the UK Parliament and the devolved nations to ensure hepatitis C stays firmly on the political agenda. It also publishes a range of reports and resources on aspects of the hepatitis C care pathway.
