Project Description

Lincoln City Football Club, through Lincoln City Foundation will deliver a transformational project which will provide a community centre for learning and improving people’s physical, mental and social wellbeing in one of the most deprived areas of the City.

The project will create new education and skills training facilities for the Lincoln City Foundation and rejuvenate an existing outdoor community facility to support the delivery of health, wellbeing and activity programmes

Project Rationale

  • Responds to the need for investment in skills infrastructure to improve learning and employment outcomes • Contributes towards the City’s objective for an inclusive growth programme
  • Provides additionality through the delivery of bespoke facilities for FE/HE and apprenticeships, not currently offered in this locality
  • As a key attraction in the City, investment will also contribute towards visitor numbers and spend post-Covid
  • Links with the wider transport proposals for the area (Sincil Bank) and the collective impact of these interventions will deliver positive change within this community, supporting longer-term investment and higher land values to enable sustainable growth
