Lincolnshire County Council received £835,000 from the government for additional support for vulnerable people which has been allocated as follows:
- Additional funding of £400,000 to the Lincolnshire Food Partnership to ensure new and emerging local food banks will have grants and support in place to help them to thrive. To find details of your local food bank go to www.lincolnfoodpartnership.org/.
- A further £215,000 to the Community Lincs Programme run by the YMCA which support Good Neighbour schemes and food kitchens for communities in Lincolnshire. You can find schemes in your area here: www.maphub.net/LincsGNS/lincs-gns
- During the pandemic we've also provided the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum (LRF) with £217,000 to bulk purchase food stock to support our most vulnerable residents.
As always we will respond to requests for support positively and if there are children in need we will act immediately to keep them safe. If people need help then they can contact us on www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/childrenshealth or 01522 782030 and we will direct you to further support.
