The Managed Care Network is an alliance of county-wide community groups and organisations delivering a variety of support activities, services and projects which provide people with structure and choice in their lives contributing to individuals’ emotional wellbeing within their own community.

The Mental Health Promotion Fund that underpins this network is a partnership which has historically been provided by Lincolnshire County Council and Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT). The management of the network has now been handed over from LPFT to Shine Lincolnshire, and we excited to announce the launch of Wave 11 funding.

The funding aims to support people to live independently in their own homes and communities with access to a range of activities and services that promotes outcomes such as reduced social isolation, a safe non-judgemental space to support recovery and promote good mental health. Projects shall generally contribute to improved health, wellbeing, independence and choice for people with a mental illness including serious mental illness.  This involves working alongside people with lived experience & partner agencies to ensure equitable access to community support services across the County.

Activities can include peer to peer support, sporting and other outdoor activities, creative art sessions, learning different skills, developing coping strategies, meeting new people, and taking on challenges.
