Assist is a free service and was initially only available to people in Cherry Willingham, Fiskerton, and Reepham. However, we have been able to extend our service to include North Lincoln (Ermine and St Giles) and villages to the North and East of Lincoln such as Welton, Nettleham, and Sudbrooke. If you are not sure if we cover your area please contact us and ask.
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.
If you just need a listening ear then we are here for you.
We couldn't list all the different ways in which we might be able to help you but if you are struggling in some way give us a call and if we can't help we will find someone who can.
