Lincolnshire councils, alongside stakeholder groups have come together to help support residents as we enter the winter months.
Lincolnshire councils, alongside stakeholder groups including the Integrated Care Board, health and care providers, faith and community groups, charities and local businesses have come together to help support residents as we enter the winter months.
A task force has been set up to review the potential impacts caused by the cost of living through the autumn/winter 2022 and to harness effort across all partners to help in supporting, where possible, the communities of Lincolnshire.
The Lincolnshire councils have now set up Cost of Living Support pages, highlighting what support is available within their areas, and can be accessed as followed:
- Boston Borough Council: Cost of Living - Boston Borough Council
- City of Lincoln Council: Cost of Living Support – City of Lincoln Council
- East Lindsey District Council: Cost of Living Support - East Lindsey District Council (e-lindsey.gov.uk)
- North Kesteven District Council: Cost of Living Support | North Kesteven District Council (n-kesteven.gov.uk)
- South Holland District Council: Cost of Living Support - South Holland District Council (sholland.gov.uk)
- South Kesteven District Council: Cost of Living help and support (southkesteven.gov.uk)
- West Lindsey District Council: Cost of living support | West Lindsey District Council (west-lindsey.gov.uk)
- Lincolnshire County Council: Cost of living – Lincolnshire County Council
Through co-ordinated and collaborative activity, the organisations plan to widely publicise what support is available for members of the community and to signpost them to further help where needed.
Connect to Support Lincolnshire, which is an online information and advice library, community directory and marketplace for adults in Lincolnshire, will also be regularly updated with support for residents in the county.

Cllr Owen Bierley, leader at West Lindsey District Council said: “Through partnership working we hope to maximise knowledge and signpost what help is available to our residents across the county.
“We will work together with partners to do all that we can to give residents relevant and updated information and support which may help them during what we know will be a difficult autumn/winter for many.”
