Lincolnshire County Council Adult Care and Community Wellbeing together with Lincolnshire NHS have launched their partnership online Library of Information and Services called Connect to Support Lincolnshire. This is being provided in conjunction with Lincs2Advice.
Connect to Support Lincolnshire provides people with a range of options on how care, support, health and community services can be accessed. Alongside the website, it offers remote support by telephone, email, and web chat. Live operators are available Monday to Friday 2.00pm to 7.00pm and Saturday 10.00am to 2.00pm.
The site provides an online directory of providers and services, alongside information and advice content pages. There will be an ongoing programme to develop the amount and scope of information held on the directory. If you are aware of organisations who have further information or details of organisations/services which can be considered for inclusion, please send details to: AdultCareOnline@lincolnshire.gov.uk. Future development of Connect to Support Lincolnshire will include the development of an e-marketplace, virtual wallet for care users, and capability to capture referrals for services.
The website can be accessed at: lincolnshire.connecttosupport.org.
