#PeerSupportMeans

This year marks 20 years since the formation of The Hepatitis C Trust. Peer support, using the lived experience of hepatitis C volunteers and staff have to support people with the virus, has always been key to our work. 

Over the past 20 years our work has expanded and grown. An extensive network of staff and volunteer peers is now supporting the drive to eliminate hepatitis C in the UK through work in communities, in prisons, and on our helpline.

This is a truly groundbreaking programme, using peer support to make sure everyone can access treatment for hepatitis C. By helping to eliminate the virus, peers are saving lives, supporting health services and tackling health inequalities.

#PeerSupportMeans is a series of interviews and blogs with the people at the forefront of this work.
