Your Life leaflets
A series of six leaflets for young people aged between 13–25 who have HIV, exploring topics including growing up, work and careers, further and higher education, independent living, rights, and talking to others about HIV.
Most of the leaflets include stories from young people living with HIV, and all contain links to other sources of information and support. The leaflets were produced in 2012; whilst every effort was made to ensure they could be used for as long as possible, young people may need some additional updated information or clarification (e.g. on available resources, medical developments or policy changes).

Growing up with HIV
An animation created by young people living with HIV.
It featured in a display at the Science Museum in 2014–15 which questioned 'The end of AIDS?' and used personal stories to highlight the struggles, successes and misconceptions people with HIV deal with today.
