Communities

We are working to create a Lincolnshire where people are connected, communities thrive and opportunities exist for all so that we can continue to develop the mind, body and spirit of individuals, families and communities and improve health and wellbeing for all. We work with people, giving them the skills, resources, connections and confidence to help them deliver a better future for themselves, the people they care about and the communities they live in. Ever mindful of embedding positive change, new opportunities and ongoing sustainability in every project we deliver, our impact is wide ranging.

Please see a range of our community projects below


Good Neighbours Scheme

Would your community like to get involved?

Good Neighbour Schemes are run by local volunteers who provide day to day support for other residents who may need help on an occasional or regular basis. For older people, this support may enable them to live independently in their own homes and communities for longer and reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness.

TED (Talk, Eat and Drink) Ageing Better in East Lindsey

TED is a seven year National Lottery Community Fund Project as part of their Ageing Better Programme which is working with individuals, groups, organisations and local businesses across the district to reduce social isolation and loneliness for those over 50. 36.4% of the population in East Lindsey are aged over 60 and 80% are living in rural locations.

We help to organise self-sustaining Friendship Groups, conduct Age-friendly Business Awards and work with a variety of Delivery Partners to reach a wider community.

If you are interested in getting involved, either by becoming an Age-friendly Business, creating a local friendship group, becoming a TED member, volunteering with our Delivery Partners or taking part in our regular events, please click here for more information.


Age-friendly Futures

Age-friendly Futures champions the over 50s, supporting people to learn new skills, build confidence and play a vital role in their community.

This project works directly with the over 50s community on the East Coast in supporting them to take part in training, confidence building activities and CV preparation. In order to encourage them into employment, start job searches based on the new skills gained through AFF or into further training as well as providing motivation, team working and interpersonal skills. Each participant will have their own learning plan, which will include training certification, work experience schedule, reflection record plus a next steps plan.

This project actively supports ELDCs vision to enable prosperous communities and its strategic commitment to enable better ageing. As a key partner, ELDC has expressed a commitment to fully support a programme of work made possible through the Employment and Skills ESF Grant Programme.
