Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service

Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service (LCVS) is a charity working in a variety of ways to support the health and wellbeing of communities and individuals.

We work with local groups and charities to provide practical, community based solutions to social and economic problems and provide a forum for sharing information and knowledge.


Social Prescribing

Group Support

Whatever your area of interest or motivation to become a volunteer, we can support you to find the perfect volunteering role.

Our volunteering support service is also here to help you recruit volunteers for your organisation.

Social prescribing starts with the question, “what is important to you?” 

Social Prescribing Link Workers support people to think about their goals, how they can move towards achieving them and the help they need.

Whether your group is well established, just getting going or you have an idea and want to start a new group, our specialist team of community development officers can support you and your community group or organisation with a range of topics.

Community Projects

Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service uses its experience and connections to work with partner agencies and authorities to deliver specific projects and training.

We also have a valued role as a trusted voice to represent our communities in decision-making and policy planning arenas.
