Home improvement charity moves to Lincoln

An award-winning charity helping vulnerable people live independently at home, is relocating to new premises at Saracen House, City Office Park, in Lincoln.

Lincolnshire Home Improvement Agency is an independent charity offering services such as fitting stair lifts and providing handymen to help vulnerable people continue to live in their own home.

Formerly having offices in Gainsborough, Sleaford and Boston, the organisation received two awards in 2009, for “Agency of the Year” and “Excellence in Providing Support and Advice” from the National Body for Home Improvement Agencies.

Director, Mick King, explained the decision to go from three offices to one central location in Lincoln.

King said: “It is more efficient to work in one place and we are close to organisations such as Lincolnshire County Council who we have contracts with.”

Chartered Surveyors, Hodgson Elkington, secured the letting which will see the charity move in with Barclays Bank, Inland Revenue and The Red Cross in November.

The work carried out by the charity is funded by councils, grants and also private payments and they operate across Lincolnshire.
