Bobby Goldsmith Foundation (BGF)

Established in 1984, Bobby Goldsmith Foundation (BGF) is Australia’s oldest community based HIV organisation, providing clients services and health promotion programs for people living with HIV (PLHIV) in NSW and SA.

Our mission is to support and empower people living with HIV to thrive. We focus on being agile and adapting to the changing needs of the people we support so that our services and programs remain relevant and accessible to everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or cultural and linguistic background. We’re here to adapt and respond to the widely divergent needs of our clients as they navigate the social, physical and emotional impacts of HIV.

We now have more diverse clients but the one thread that links them all is that they very often experience stigma and discrimination because of their HIV status. We’re here to advocate with and for people living with HIV, and to make positive changes in our communities to help end HIV stigma.

We are here to provide a safe, open and inclusive environment for all members of the gender, sexual diversity and ally communities. We are here to ensure that all people living with HIV feel welcome and supported.
