LIL’s 2016 report is now available for download, see below for the full text of the report.
It’s been another busy year for us, with no paid funding for the work we do (apart from claiming back fuel and carer costs). We continue to support residents of Lincolnshire who have disabilities and their careers. We continue to support all those who come to us for help or advice and supporting local meetings and groups who ask for support, advice or representation.
Unfortunately due to health reasons and lack of finance our attendance at meetings has been curtailed substantially this year. However our commitment and offer of help remain strong. We also continue to look for avenues of funding which won’t restrict our ability to act as a voice for our disabled communities.
We look forward to growing our networks further by supporting even more groups, sharing information and knowledge with the ethos that better informed and supported service users are given the opportunity to live as independently as they want with the options of having the choice and control they want.
Our annual accounts and report on our web presence is available on request.
