This collaborative programme between Community Lincs’ T.E.D. Ageing Better in East Lindsey programme and East Lindsey District Council is the first of its kind on the East Coast to work towards the WHO Age-friendly accreditation.

Age-friendly environments foster healthy and active ageing. They enable older people to: age safely in a place that is right for them; be free from poverty; continue to develop personally; and to contribute to their communities while retaining autonomy, health and dignity.

The role of Principal Officer provides a unique opportunity to be part of this collaboration from inception and to play a key role in the development and success of the programme. The successful applicant will be working directly with strategic partners to support the development and implementation of a district-wide action plan, ensure it remains on track and is delivered within agreed timescales.
