About Positive Health

The organisation is a charitable company limited by guarantee, incorporated on 9 March 2001 and registered as a charity on 14 April 2002. The company was established under a Memorandum of Association, which established the objects and powers of the charitable company and is governed under its Articles of Association. In the event of the company being wound up members are required to contribute an amount not exceeding £10. Prior to our incorporation in March 2001 the organisation was known as LAVG (Lincolnshire HIV & AIDS Voluntary Group) The organisation had originally been formed in 1985 and received charitable status in 1995. In 2000 the members agreed to form a company limited by guarantee and requested that we took the opportunity to change the charity name to one, which offered more confidentiality to our clientele and better reflected the work we are involved in. As a result Positive Health was chosen. A student, following a competition at a local school, designed our logo. LAVG was formally dissolved on 1st July 2002 with all assets being transferred to Positive Health (Lincolnshire). In 2000 we purchased our current headquarters, which were completely remodelled and refurbished in 2003 to enable us to better meet the needs of our clientele.
