STRONGER TOGETHER

Enhancing health, safety and wellbeing

Lincs Independent Living Partnership (LILP) is a consortium of five local charitable organisations working at the heart of the community to promote independent living.

LILP members work with each other and with external agencies, and have developed services, such as the Hospital Avoidance Response Team (HART), Memory Lane Dementia Day Service and the Wellbeing Service*, to enhance the health, safety and wellbeing of the more vulnerable members of our community. By preventing accidents, illness and hospital admission, our services do the local community good too.

Our ground-breaking services continue to win awards, reflecting the fact that the LILP formula works: tried and trusted local organisations making the most of local resources to make a real difference to people’s lives.

‘Overcoming Loneliness’ art competition

LILP members are committed to helping vulnerable people overcome loneliness.  To help bring this key issue to the fore, we’re running an art competition on the theme.  Winning entries will be included in a LILP calendar 2019.  If you’d like to take part, please click here  for more information and here to download a competition entry form and read the rules.

 

*Wellbeing Service handover

Please note that from 1 April 2018, LILP will hand over delivery of the Wellbeing Service to Wellbeing Lincs (a consortium of district councils led by East Lindsey District Council), and will do its best to ensure a smooth transition. To make a referral into the Wellbeing Service, you should continue to call 01522 782140.  Existing Wellbeing Service customers should contact the Wellbeing Lincs Hub on 01507 613126.

 

 

What our customers say

We struck up a rapport with our HART responder immediately; I felt I had known her all my life!  The care was superb and I was rather sad when it finished.”
