Lincolnshire Care Association become a Friend of the Centre

We’re delighted to welcome Lincolnshire Care Association (LinCA) as the East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre's latest Friend of the Centre.

LinCA is a not-for-profit organisation supporting adult care providers of Domiciliary Care, End of Life Care, Learning Disabilities, Mental Health, Nursing Homes, Residential Care Homes, and Supported Living within the independent and voluntary sectors in Lincolnshire.

They exist to help their members get their voices heard, both locally and nationally, helping provide better care across Lincolnshire.  They play a key role in promoting a positive image of the care sector, ensuring there is quality and choice in the provision of care services within their region.

Their vision

The demographic and social trends within Lincolnshire, both now and in the future, will influence the nature and demand for appropriate care services. In addition to the ageing population the number of people with physical and mental frailties will increase. The expectations and aspirations of people in need of care are and will continue to be greater than ever before.

LINCA’s response to the future is to ensure that there is quality and choice in the provision of care services within Lincolnshire. They aim to do this through easily accessible information, advice and support and to encourage care providers to respond to need, through the provision of quality services and to work in partnership with other agencies and organisations.

Their purpose

The purpose of Lincolnshire Care Association (LinCA) is to:

  • Represent the views and concerns of both proprietors and managers concerned with the provision of care.

  • To foster and exchange ideas between members and to provide services that are of mutual benefit and assistance.

  • To advise members on any matter relevant to the provision of care.

Their mission

LinCA aims to support and enable care providers to deliver effective, sustainable services with quality, person-centred outcomes for those who use them, and to respond in a dynamic way to changes in the wider health and care system.
