Our Story

The Brunswick Centre was established in 2001 following the merger of two local HIV charities, Calderdale HIV/AIDS Link (CHAL) and Kirklees AIDS Response (KAR) who were established in the late 1980’s in response to the support needs of people with HIV.

We are keen on, and have a long history of, working with partner services, locally, regionally and nationally to ensure we get the best for the communities we serve.
