Through 2020 and 2021 Shine Lincolnshire has continued to grow and develop, this has allowed us to expand our foundations as a network organisation and develop to be involved in Grant administration and Peer Support.
We have continued to add to our directory of services and events across Lincolnshire, working with big and small partner organisations to provide you with information from national charities to local book clubs.
During 2021 we have taken on the responsibility of managing 3 funding streams on behalf of The Clinical Commissioning group for Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire County Council. The money invested in the community through The Community Asset Development fund, Managed Care Network fund (Wave 11) and Suicide Prevention Innovation fund has allowed for 127 projects across Lincolnshire to benefit over 15,000 beneficiaries.
We have also branched into delivering peer support and have appointed 10 peer support workers across the county. These colleagues have been selected due to their passion for community support and their lived experience, which allows them to support others more effectively in a community setting.
Despite the pandemic 2021 was a year that Shine Lincolnshire thrived, and we are excited to continue this and develop our offer for Lincolnshire.
