At Lincoln City Foundation, our vision is for happier, healthier, inspired communities across Lincolnshire. We strive to inspire, empower, and help individuals and communities to improve their physical, social, and mental wellbeing.

We deliver a range of programmes under the key areas of, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Community Cohesion, Education and Employability, and Sport and Physical Activity.

This is good for wellbeing because

  • It provides programmes for people of all ages and abilities and offers the chance to engage in positive activities.
  • It provides opportunities for individuals to create new and supportive social networks.
  • It offers a chance to engage with positive and supportive staff who are there to help and listen.

Coming here, attending the classes, coming to the Hub and socialising, doing bits and bobs, some table-tennis, some activities, it is just lovely. It is just such a lovely feeling. You know, you go away with that lovely feeling in your heart, and I cannot think of anything better than that for me. Socialising makes me feel good… it helps me in every which way, I can have a laugh, and chat to someone. I can learn something interesting from somebody, which is always good because you can take that away with you. When I think “what day is today?”, “oh yeah [it’s Wednesday]” and you get your trainers on and your gear, and I am ready. Excitement, it’s something to look forward to.

A few years ago, I suffered a nervous/ mental break down losing all my self-confidence and becoming very recluse, distancing myself from all my friends and family. Through joining the [Team Talk] sessions ran by the Foundation I have re-found a love for football. Even though I am now very unfit I go home after each session buzzing, benefiting both physically and mentally from the sessions. I believe the sessions have had a positive effect on my physical and mental well-being and had a knock-on effect on my personal life as well, beginning to help to rebuild my relationships with my family and friends, through the sense of well-being, happiness, and achievement that the sessions have provided.
