About LASS

With a diverse community to reach, Leicestershire AIDS Support Services (LASS) has a team of trained community tester volunteers taking testing directly into their own communities.

LASS also offers a rapid HIV testing service on its premises. Anyone can walk in and, within minutes, know their status.

Testing provides LASS with the ideal opportunity to discuss safer sex directly with clients. It also has a weekly slot on community radio where it promotes positive sexual health messages more widely.

What the judges thought

'LASS is working with hard-to-reach groups and achieving results in the process. It is sharing best practice to further improve outcomes for its service users. It is a strong all-rounder that is innovating to respond to changing needs.'
