Community Lincs welcomes a new additional sponsor to help it develop more Good Neighbour Schemes. Lincolnshire Coop is providing support allowing new schemes to be developed Countywide in addition to our current Sponsor TED and The National Lottery, that provide support in East Lindsey.
Good Neighbour Schemes are community run voluntary schemes that provide support activities for people at a time of need such as companionship, befriending, help with shopping or getting to appointments, household tasks, pet or garden care and aim to reduce isolation and loneliness, especially amongst older or less able people.
Lincolnshire Coop raises funding for various causes via its Community Champions Scheme and Community Lincs’ Good Neighbour Scheme Development will be receiving money from this fund over the next 3 months. Lincolnshire Coop also aim to raise awareness of Good Neighbours Schemes via its media and in shops with fund raising and community surveys being undertaken in key locations to identify where new schemes are needed and volunteers to help run them.
