After a fantastic weekend away at PGL Liddington everyone is home safe and sound! The CAFPH YOUTH team are back in the office too and already working hard to prepare our activities for November and beyond …What a busy November it’s going to be too!

This month plays host to National HIV Testing Week (November 22-30) and also backs directly on to, fantastic, global event World Aids Day (December 1st). At CAFPH YOUTH we want to play our part in raising awareness and increasing people’s knowledge. Throughout the month we will be sharing HIV related facts and statistics on our Facebook site as well as working together with local organisations to start the conversation with a party… that’s right we are planning a flashmob!! You can find all the details and get regular updates by following us on Facebook or Twitter.

Check in here too to get the confirmed dates and times later in the month. It is a great cause, and a topic of real importance, so let’s make it fun, and make some noise. Bring your best moves; we’ll see you soon!
