Abbey Access Training was established as a charity and a company limited by guarantee in 1999.  The aim of the Centre is to contribute to the economic, social and environmental regeneration of the Abbey ward and wider City of Lincoln through programmes of training, education and community activities.

The Centre is situated in the Abbey ward in the City of Lincoln. The area falls within the top 5% of deprived wards in the country and the top 1% for health deprivation. The main aspects of deprivation impacting on this are:

  • High levels of crime, deprivation and disability
  • High levels of unemployment and homelessness
  • High levels of young people not in education, training or employment
  • High levels of migrant people living and working in the area
  • Poor health and short life expectancy

Abbey Access Training targets its services on these groups and markets itself to people who experience barriers to learning and social inclusion. Regardless of changes in funding over the years, the Centre has provided a continuity of service for the City and local community and has supported and trained over 5000 learners between September 2008 and December 2019.  The Centre prides itself on its supportive training environment, working with commitment and energy to provide a variety of opportunities. 

If you are interested in joining the Board, then please contact Gail Dunn, Centre Manager on 01522 801556 or
