Registered charity providing sexual health and HIV services across Calderdale and Kirklees.

There are two service teams within the Brunswick Centre, the HIV Support team which provides services to people infected with or directly affected by HIV and the HIV Prevention team which provides HIV prevention and Sexual Health promotion services to Gay, Bi-sexual and other men who have sex with men and to Black Africans and other communities at increased risk of HIV. The service teams can also provide training on HIV, sexual health and sexuality issues.

The Brunswick Centre also works at a strategic level within Kirklees and Calderdale and works with a variety of partners, including the NHS, Local Authorities and Community and Voluntary sector organisations to ensure incidences of HIV infection are reduced, and the sexual health of the local population is improved.
