Providing access to a range of activities and services within the community that promotes outcomes which, in turn, support recovery and good mental health, would contribute to generally improved health, wellbeing, independence, and choice for people with a mental illness, including serious mental illness. This involves working alongside people with lived experience and partner agencies to ensure unbiased access to community support services across the County and developing Community Assets to provide a wide range of activities and services for Social Prescribers to tap into.
Community Asset Development funding has seen the implementation of Wave 1 and 2 in Lincolnshire. Wave one of the funding saw a total of 21 applications with 19 going forward to deliver projects across Lincoln, Gainsborough, Boston and Grantham. Wave two was opened across 9 Primary care network areas: Trent, Imp, Apex/ Marina, East Lindsey, First Coastal, SOLAS, Boston, K2 Grantham and Four Counties. The fund saw a total of 106 applications with 35 successful organisations being granted funding to begin projects between September 2021 and March 2022.
