Wardens: Services not being cut

Re last week’s article about the petition to save wardens.

Lincolnshire County Council do not provide wardens. We pay for housing related support from providers, however some service providers have chosen to use wardens to provide these support services.

The council commissions a wide range of support services to help people live independently eg handyman services and installing equipment such as telecare.

These support services are not being cut – in fact, the new Wellbeing Service will make them available to more people and through a single assessment.
