LCC Adults’ and Children’s Services

Welcome to the Employer Profile Page of Lincolnshire County Council. Here you can see the key data, learn about the culture and meet the managers of the organisation before applying for a job in either its children’s and adults’ social work departments.

Alongside making a difference to the lives of families in Lincolnshire, we are sharing best practice and driving innovation as an improvement partner to other authorities. And our people are at the heart of this progress. That is why from tailored in-house training to the South Yorkshire Teaching Partnership, we make sure they have access to the best development opportunities. Our work is changing lives. If you share our passion for making a difference to children, young people and families. I would be delighted if you joined us.


We support you:

  • older people
  • people with learning disabilities
  • people with physical disabilities and sensory impairment
  • people with mental health needs

We are responsible for ensuring the most vulnerable adults in our community and their family/informal carers are kept safe. And that they are provided with support to meet their needs.


Like all local authorities, we face challenges, but we are proud we’ve continued to provide good quality services to the people of Lincolnshire. In fact, the budget for adult care has grown to ensure vital services are protected for our elderly population. We don’t rest on our laurels however and continue to strive for more creative ways of improving services and relationships with other partners, such as the NHS and care providers.

Our role:

Adult care is in the business of people. People have challenges in their lives, but they also have success, strengths, aspirations and goals. The role of adult care is to understand who the people we work with are, what is important to them, what they aspire to be and what they want to change.


Our role is to build a relationship with people, understand what they wish to achieve and support them to have the best possible outcomes in their lives.

Our involvement isn’t about time spent, forms filled in or services commissioned. Our involvement is  about making a difference to people’s lives by listening, empowering, understanding and working together to help them be active participants in their support.

Recognising your strengths:

We want to support people to recognise their own strengths so that they can be active members of their communities and have ownership of their health and care.


We want to empower people to be confident in making choices about their own care, taking control of their health needs and being part of their community, and to help people get the most from life.
