Assist is a free service and is available to people in Cherry Willingham, Fiskerton, and Reepham aswell as, North Lincoln (Ermine and St Giles) and villages to the North and East of Lincoln such as Welton, Dunholme, Nettleham, Sudbrooke and Scothern.
We provide support to anyone over the age of eighteen years irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, religion, or ethnic background. We can visit you at home but we can also help you get out and about to enable you to rebuild your confidence. Assist provides one to one support to people who are lonely; people who are recovering from illness or accident; and people who need help to get back 'on their feet' after a setback in life. Our volunteers get alongside people who need encouragement, friendship or advice to help them get through a difficult time because of depression, bereavement, breakdown in family relationships or other stress full life event. We can Assist you to obtain help from other services or accompany you to an appointment where you feel you need some support.
Assist was pleased to achieve the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award in November 2019. It was great to receive recognition for the valuable way Assist helps those carers with whom it works whether it be in our “one to one” work or our support groups
