Positive Advice

"Huge congratulations to everyone involved, and a big thank you to TBI for making this happen"

- Madelaine Jones - Development and Partnerships Manager, Raise Your Hands


A gifted 6 part podcast series to the charity CHIVA, who support and empower young people growing up with HIV.


A fully gifted 6 part podcast series, including:
- Idea development with the charity
- Script writing
- Guest booking
- Studio recording facilities and a 2 day record experience
- Full edit and music licensing
- Set up and distribution across podcast platforms


At our 22/23 Away Day, the team pitched and voted for the charity that we'd like to support for the next 12 months. We decided to back Raise Your Hands - a group that represents smaller charities who don't get the same levels of funding as big name ones.

One such charity is CHIVA - the Children's HIV Association. Their mission is to ensure that children, young people and young adults growing up with HIV become healthier, happier and more in control of their own lives.

We're delighted to have gifted to CHIVA a fully produced 6 part podcast series - Positive Advice - which went live in March 2023.

Hosted by Eli Fitzgerald - a young trans man living with HIV - the series explores what life is like for those growing up with HIV. Repurposing stories recorded as part of an existing CHIVA x British Library project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Positive Advice podcast takes themed clips from these recordings and explores the topics raised with expert guests and young people involved in the charity. Across the series, we hear from young people from around the world who are growing up with HIV, exploring their experiences of family, mental health, healthcare environments and treatment, school and education, navigating relationships, and HIV activism.
