The Hepatitis C Trust is the national UK charity for hepatitis C and has been operating since 2001. We were founded and are now led and run by people with personal experiences of hepatitis C and almost all of our Board, staff and volunteers either have hepatitis C or have had it and have cleared it after treatment. Our vision is that no-one dies from this preventable and treatable disease and ultimately it is all but eradicated in the UK. Our mission is to support, inform and empower people who have hepatitis C and drive improvements in prevention, diagnosis and access to treatment.  

Our goals are :

  1. To increase awareness of hepatitis C and reduce the level of stigmatisation
  2. To promote prevention, diagnosis and access to treatment
  3. To build a stronger community of people living with hepatitis C
  4. To increase access to appropriate support for people living with hepatitis C
