Lincolnshire leads the way
Lincs Independent Living Partnership (LILP) has just published its Annual Review 2016 – 17. The publication demonstrates how this consortium of local charitable organisations has continued ground-breaking work with commissioners locally in developing services which enhance the health, safety and wellbeing of Lincolnshire’s more vulnerable residents, and, at the same time, prevent accident, illness and hospital admission.
The review shows how LILP’s services, which include the Wellbeing Service and Hospital Avoidance Response Team (HART), have helped make a real difference to local people’s lives whilst relieving pressures on the health and care sectors.
The report also underlines LILP’s impact on the local community: one service provider which can draw upon the resources of five local, tried and trusted charitable organisations – Age UK Lincoln & Kesteven, Boston Mayflower, LACE Housing, Lincolnshire Home Independence Agency and St Barnabas Hospice. On the spot and always available to the commissioner, reinvesting any surplus in the community and together substantially boosting the local economy, LILP is a shining example of socially-responsible procurement.
