Meet The Team

The Board

Community Lincs (CL) has been set up as a Company Limited by Guarantee since 5 May 1995 and was registered as a charity on 19 May 1995.  Prior to this CL had operated as an unincorporated association. The decision to change the legal status was made (a) to safeguard Trustees/Board Members as funding regimes moved away from grants towards contractual funding linked to Service Level Agreements, and (b) because CL purchased its own property and therefore needed to have a separate legal personality.
