The programme forms part of the wider Community Testing Programme (CTP) which helps to identify asymptomatic cases through local testing and supports the participants to isolate. A third of individuals who test positive for coronavirus have no symptoms at all and can therefore spread it unknowingly. Community testing uses rapid lateral flow tests to help identify those people who are infectious to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. More information about the CTP can be found here and you can find your nearest local authority testing site here.
