    Would this be the same level of service to The LGBT community as the withdrawal of funding in Bedfordshire for HIV outreach work. It seems that youner people, as portrayed by The Health Authority, are not the only ones who have become complacent on the issue

    Will Cresent still get funding if it had a star with it?

    Depending on the relationship between the two ASOs, how about Herts Aid opening a West side office by contracting out to Crescent?
    In addition to providing service where it is needed, this would help with future funding decisions by increasing the number of clients served and lowering Herts Aid’s average overhead.

    I know nothing about the local politics, however, it now occurs to me: Is this some party’s agenda?

    1. Hi David,

      That would be a sensible thing to do, as for the last almost 25 years we had worked alongside them. The whole issue seems to be rather political, the decision doesnt make sense at all if viewed on the basis of cost, or accessibility so what is left?

      It would be simpler for the County Council to return to the previous arrangement, and split funding between the two organisations as before. The issue there i see is that we at the Crescent could afford to run on the reduced funding, however i think the other organisation may struggle as their overheads are considerably higher than ours it seems.

Why while the london hiv charity sector is claiming its “transparent upfront and honest” – the new publisher of positive nation hiv mag announced “its jobs for the boys and dishonesty” and they are going to start exposing organisations…but they never did as the hiv charity gravy train chuggs on – oh la la
