Lincolnshire's wellbeing service is now delivered universally across the county

The Wellbeing Service is designed to promote confidence in people to live independently.

If you, or someone you know, is aged 18+ and needs support, then get in touch to see what help is available.

TheLincolnshire’s wellbeing service is now delivered universally across the county by a partnership of Lincolnshire’s district councils, under the name Wellbeing Lincs.

The service, which covers all of Lincolnshire, ultimately aims to support people in achieving confident, fulfilled independent living, following a change in circumstances such as bereavement, ill health, disability or changing medical need.

There are a number of aspects, from a 12-week package of support specifically tailored to an individuals’ needs through to help in identifying the most suitable level of telecare support, assistance in ensuring safe and timely transition from hospital to home and the fixing of aids and adaptations to aid mobility at home.

The service has already helped so many people including a 63-year-old in West Lindsey, who has gained more independence both inside and outside the home. She has a lifeline, bus pass and blue badge to aid mobility and aids and equipment to help her get about the house.

The core elements of the service are free, but charges apply in some circumstances.

Different aspects of the service are hosted by East Lindsey, West Lindsey and North Kesteven district councils, but all of Lincolnshire’s district councils are collectively responsible for service delivery.

Referrals are made through Lincolnshire County Council’s Customer Service Centre on 01522 782140.
