Relocation of offices for Age UK Lincoln and South Lincolnshire
The staff, volunteers and service teams have moved into new premises in the Boston town centre as part of the merger with Age UK's counterpart in Lincoln where their head office is located.
The new offices are located within Lincolnshire Housing Partnership at Chantry House, 3 Lincoln Lane, Boston, Lincolnshire, PE21 8RU.
The combined area will see services and support offered to approximately 110,000 of the 171,000 population who currently live in our area, who are all people over the age of 50.
Lincolnshire Housing Partnership - known as LHP formed in April 2018 from a merger between Boston Mayflower and Shoreline Housing Partnership.
The landlord offers a local accredited Telecare Service in partnership with Age UK Lincoln & South Lincolnshire - helping local residents to live independently.
LHP Business Manager Bev Chapman said: "We look forward to welcoming Age UK Lincoln & South Lincolnshire into our central office facilities.
"Not only is this beneficial to local residents visiting both organisations but it enables us to efficiently work together to provide a valuable support service to the local community."
At the moment in Boston and South Holland they offer a home support service, where they can help in the home with domestic chores, help with shopping or take clients to appointments. Their information and advice service can help complete forms for blue badges and attendance allowance and also carry out benefit checks. Over the following 12 months the services currently available to Lincoln residents will be shared across South Lincolnshire.
"We will continue to grow and develop our combined information and advice service and our volunteering services too." Michele Seddon - CEO of Lincoln & South Lincolnshire
