We celebrated 10 years (well a little over )8/2/2021
I can’t believe that JUST Lincolnshire has celebrated it’s tenth anniversary…… Where does the time go? I certainly can’t believe that we would have been celebrating this anniversary during a pandemic!
This has provided an ideal opportunity to look back on what JUST Lincolnshire has accomplished, where we are, and our plans and aspirations for the future.
I am so glad that so many of you were able to join us for our ‘virtual’ celebration on Wednesday 3rd February and for those of you who couldn’t please check out the recording and this article.
It became clear to me when preparing for the celebration that what JUST Lincolnshire has identified as the 5 C’s are a thread that runs through so much of our work, these being:
It is also clear that we could not have achieved what we have without the fabulous support of our partners and ambassadors, thank you so much for your ongoing commitment.
We look forward to the future with renewed vigour and a commitment towards making Lincolnshire a fairer place to live, work and visit
A little different this year in how we have all had to adapt how we celebrate, albeit virtually, we are grateful we were able to see all the faces all on one screen.
The presentation we shared gave a little insight into the impact we have had in a positive way in the county of Lincolnshire.

What’s new and how have we adapted?
- As a team we are meeting daily, and making new contacts of mutual gain.
- We have been looking at new and different ways to work with schools.
- We are in the process of finalising a primary school resource
- Looking at new and exciting ways of working.
Developing and recognising opportunities as we go along will continue to change as we go along.
We are consistently looking at different ways to get the message out there for all to engage.
The world has recognised the huge inequalities during this pandemic, and we continue to work towards being a sound board. The #CourageousConversations captures a small part of what we have done towards addressing those inequalities.
