Two charities have announced their intention to merge - a move which is aimed at better serving Lincolnshire residents.

The trustees of Community Lincs and YMCA Lincolnshire have proposed the merger - due to take place in October following a period of consultation - to enable the two organisations “to combine their strengths, skills, resources and knowledge”.

It would see Community Lincs become a distinct service and sub-brand of YMCA Lincolnshire.

Services currently delivered by Community Lincs would remain unaffected.
