Lincolnshire Community Foundation
Lincolnshire Community Foundation was founded in 2002 and is dedicated to serving the diverse county of Lincolnshire; delivering positive environmental/societal change and, most importantly, positive outcomes for people and places.
To date, we’ve distributed over £14M to over 4,000 charities, community groups and organisations throughout Greater Lincolnshire, with emphasis on small grants delivering a big difference. These grants have helped groups tackle issues such as child poverty, loneliness and isolation, food poverty, homelessness, access to services, addiction, unemployment and many other unique and individual needs that exist across Lincolnshire’s places.
Hopelinks SIRs Project
SIRs will be manned by a group of volunteers to ‘ASSIST’ in taking calls – with a coordinator managing the initial triage and connecting carers with a volunteer. The purpose of the project is to give carers the opportunity to chat often unburden themselves in a non-clinical and nonjudgemental setting. This service would provide a buffer and obviate the need for more clinical services that are already overstretched.
We are currently supporting some of the most vulnerable people in society, from families with young children living with cancer, to older people who have never used a mobile device previously. ‘Cancer poverty’ is something affecting more people every week.
