Michele Seddon, Chief Executive Officer, has announced that Age UK Lincoln will be expanding their service provision to cover both the North and South Kesteven areas and their name will soon change to Age UK Lincoln and Kesteven.
All of the services now provided across Lincoln will be extended across Kesteven, including access to Information and Advice which, amongst many other things, assists individuals in accessing unclaimed benefits and services that were not previously easily accessible for them. Last year, Age UK Lincoln helped service users claim £977,271 in benefits alone.
Other support services include Help in the Home, Personal Care, laundry, gardening and deep cleans, to name but a few. This will create third sector jobs and a need for a great team of volunteers across the area.
New developments will include retail shops across both Lincoln and Kesteven and hubs to allow people to access services locally.
