Alongside the testing services delivered by LGBT Foundation, there's loads of other ways you can test for HIV and other STIs.

Postal kits

FREE self-sampling kits are available in lots of different areas of the country! LGBT Foundation recommends the test.hiv service. It's really simple.

Once you've ordered, a box will arrive within a few days with everything you need to help you take a small blood sample from your finger!

Fill out the form inside, reseal the box and post it off; the results will be back to you soon. Check out the test.hiv website for more info and to place your order.
