Welcome

Our aim is to build a future where every person thrives, and no one just survives. We support people experiencing disadvantage in Lincolnshire to:

  • Build their trust and confidence – by providing a safe space where we listen/value what they have to say.
  • Develop their capacity and skills – by building on their strengths/aspirations and providing training to improve their economic prospects.
  • Improve their health and wellbeing – by providing a range of services to support mental health.
  • Engage and benefit from additional support – by encouraging service participants to speak out, and advocating for them as they seek specialist support about issues affecting their lives.

Our core delivery is based around two forms of activity:

1)           1-1 coaching and mentoring programmes and advocacy support working with beneficiaries from a broad background  including individuals with poor mental health, ex-offenders, individuals furthest from the employment market and rough sleepers.

2)           Creative, peer led, group sessions that provide an additional space for support, friendship, and creativity.

Supporting over 500 beneficiaries a year, our four main projects include:

  • Step in the Right Direction – a one-to-one coaching/mentoring programme
  • Bridging the Gap – a reducing reoffending project
  • Better Together – a collaborative project with two other charities in Lincoln offering a programme of mentoring and coaching, therapeutic garden-based activities, volunteering and training/work experience and support into employment.
  • Project Compass – our homelessness advocacy support project.

Our projects are supported by a team of 16 which includes 13 dedicated development workers who bring an array of skills to their roles and are all passionate about supporting people from all backgrounds in moving forward with their lives.
