First extra care contract in Lincolnshire

Following a competitive tending process, Housing 21 has been awarded its first extra care service at the Elizabeth Court scheme in Louth.

Built in 2005, Elizabeth Court has 40 flats that provide a mix of one and two bed accommodation. The court is managed by the New Linx Housing Trust and the care service has been provided by Lindum Care Services.

The new contract commences on 1 October 2010 and will run for at least 3 years with a further 2 year extension possible. All eligible staff working on the court will now be offered the opportunity to transfer to Housing 21.

We now look forward to building positive working partnerships with Lincolnshire County Council, the New Linx Housing Trust and most importantly with people living & accessing services at Elizabeth Court.
