During these difficult and unprecedented times, Age UK Lindsey remains committed to providing the best support to older people in East Lindsey, West Lindsey and North Lincolnshire.  To ensure the safety and well-being of our clients, staff and volunteers, it has been necessary to alter the way in which we deliver our services and suspend all social activities, but this enables us to focus our efforts on maintaining access to essential support, information, and advice, at a time when it is needed most. Our telephone lines remain open Monday - Friday, and information is available on our website at all times.
