Service Update-Joint Herts Aid/THT


Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) has been awarded the Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) HIV support services contract in Hertfordshire following a successful bid supported by current provider Herts Aid.

As a result it has been decided that Herts Aid will merge with THT, with a transfer of assets and liabilities.  An HIV support service will be delivered by THT on behalf of HCC from 1 August 2018. HCC will no longer be commissioning HIV community testing services.

For over 25 years, Herts Aid has supported thousands of people living with or impacted by HIV in the county, and this legacy of excellence will be continued through this new service.

Herts Aid and Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) will work closely together to ensure a smooth transfer of service so that people living with or impacted by HIV can access support without any interruption.

As it currently stands there will be no provision for testing services in the new contact and therefore would like to inform you that we will not be able to carry out any testing at the YMCA going forward.
