Age UK North Lincolnshire is a merger of two local charities – Independent Living North Lincolnshire and Age Concern North Lincolnshire. Based in Scunthorpe and covering the county Age Concern was established for over forty years and Independent Living, based in Barton upon Humber, also provided services countywide for thirteen years. The merged charities have brought synergy to local services for older people and a recognised and trusted professional organisation as a Brand Partner of Age UK.
As a charity, we are dependant on the amount of funding and donations that we receive, all of which helps us to provide much needed services in the county.
