Henley Project Team

The Linking, Learning and Lobbying programme is a dynamic and responsive platform for advocacy, mobilisation, research and policy development to improve carers’ working conditions.

To ensure that carers are acknowledged and supported by an enabling environment we aim to

  • address the lack of recognition of carers
  • challenge illegal & unconstitutional labour practices
  • overcome the debilitating gendered nature of care work
  • ensure fair and decent wages for carers


We strive to ensure that the voices of carers are heard, amplified and have direct impact on agendas and policy which affect them through:

  • consultations with carers
  • sensitizing care-based organisations
  • strengthening networks
  • research and policy development
  • building strategic partnerships
  • advocacy

AIDS Response believes in sustaining HIV and AIDS services through assisting organisations to work better by looking after the wellness of their teams. Caring for care-givers means nothing, however, if carers return to conditions of slave labour. That is why it is critical to actively campaign for the improved working conditions of carers.
