Charlie Hardwick who plays Val Pollard in Emmerdale came to Skyline
Her character has tested HIV positive and the actress wanted to know more about the mental impact of her diagnosis. I met with her and also arranged for a women service user to meet with her to talk about her diagnosis and how that affected her life and in what ways. The actress was compassionate and passionate about her character portraying HIV in a positive way and as the story unravels the whole of the village supports her(Eventually!). I can also tell you that Charlie asked me to test her whilst she was at Skyline.

Skyline helps me with information around HIV and it supports me with my problems. I never get judged on anything and feel that I can open up.
