Community Asset Development

Wave One

A fundamental aspect of the Mental Health Transformation Strategy for Lincolnshire is to support people to live independently in their own homes and communities. By providing access to a range of activities and services within the community that promotes outcomes which in turn support recovery and good mental health; this 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 service for Social Prescribers to ‘tap into’. 

Community Asset Development wave one saw a total of 21 applications, 20 were approved however 1 was sadly unable to continue with their project. In all, there were 19 organisations successful who began to deliver in 2021.
