What is T.E.D.

Talk, Eat, Drink (T.E.D.) in East Lindsey is funded by the BIG Lottery under its Ageing Better programme. The T.E.D. programme tries to identify the good provision that is happening through existing groups and facilities and helps to develop and promote them. This is achieved through the involvement of older people and local organisations. T.E.D. is working to reduce isolation across East Lindsey and is designed to empower and connect individuals, helping to create sustainable change in communities.

Community Lincs is leading a variety of organisations in the delivery of T.E.D., including East Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire County Council, Age UK Lindsey, Lincolnshire East CCG and Louth Seniors Forum to support as many people as possible aged 50 and over.

How Can You Get Involved?

Come along to one of our free pop up Cafés

Our pop up Cafés take place around East Lindsey and are a great chance for local people who are over 50 to meet new people, try something new or to speak to someone from the T.E.D. team. We also run regular monthly afternoon tea events in Louth and Mablethorpe.

Attend one of our free events

We run T.E.D. events four time a year, one event in each area (Alford, Louth, Mablethorpe and Skegness). The events bring together those over 50 from across East Lindsey to enjoy some good food, good company and fun activities. They also give you the chance to share your views about the things that matter to you and help us shape T.E.D.

Volunteer with T.E.D.

If you are an East Lindsey resident who would like to give some time to improve the lives of local older people then we want to hear from you. We have several different volunteer roles available to suit different people and circumstances. Join us and make a real difference in your community.

Promote your community group

T.E.D. is all about bringing people together and making it easier for local people to get more involved in their community. If you run a local group let us know. We can promote it by including it in our online database and newsletter.
