The Sexual Health Centre is currently recruiting volunteers for our KnowNow Rapid HIV Testing programme. The aim of KnowNow is to ensure that testing for HIV is as simple, accessible and convenient as possible. With rapid HIV testing, people don’t have to stress and nervously wait for the answer in the white room – the results are ready in just 60 seconds and the testing is done in a non-clinical environment of bars, clubs, and even saunas.

Full training is provided. No previous experience is necessary.
The next training is available in September/October.

We also provide additional volunteering opportunities, including community outreach and support services.
