Who we are

One Voice Network is an independent collective of Black-led community organisations and allies, seeking to improve the health and wellbeing of Black communities in the UK who are affected by HIV. 

OUR MISSION

  • To end new HIV transmissions and to stop late diagnosis among Black communities, especially among Black Africans and Black Caribbeans in the UK.

  • To empower, support and amplify the voices of Black people affected by HIV in the UK to have healthy and fulfilled lives. 

  • To provide a mechanism for the voices and views of Black people to shape the health and care services that are intended for them. 

OUR VISION

A world where Black people affected by HIV have full access to the tools, services and systems to support healthy lives. A world where the response is led and informed by the voices and views of the Black communities they are intended for. 

OUR VALUES

Community-led

Our work and approach is led and informed by Black communities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do.

Honest

We are transparent and accountable to our communities, our partners and our funders.

Collaborative

We work to build partnerships across and beyond the sector because we know that to reach our goals, we can only do it together.

Equitable

Our organisation is founded on the principle of equality and fairness and we will strive to operate according to these values at all times.  All members shall have equal rights in the running of the Network and we shall always act in accordance with our constitution.  

Quality

We strive for quality in everything we do. We seek to be informed by the best available evidence and the lived experiences of our community members across the UK. 

We persevere until we achieve the changes we wish to see.
