Ageing Better in East Lindsey
Talk, Eat, Drink (TED) in East Lindsey is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund under its Ageing Better programme. The TED Programme tries to identify the good provisions that are delivered through existing groups and facilities and helps to develop and promote them. This is achieved through the involvement of over 50s and local organisations.
TED is working to reduce isolation across East Lindsey and is designed to empower and connect individuals, helping to create sustainable change in communities.
The TED Programme looks to help organise self-sustaining Friendship Groups, deliver Age-friendly Business Awards and work with a variety of Delivery Partners to reach a wider community.
