What is Linkage?

Linkage is a Lincolnshire based registered charity that support people with learning disabilities. We deliver high-quality specialist education, care, employ and support services throughout the county.

We were established in 1976 and owes its origins to the recognition that, for many people with varying degrees of learning difficulty, there is a shortage of appropriate support for them to lead creative and purposeful lives in the community.

Everything we do is about valuing and supporting individuals, their carers and families to ensure they can achieve their aspirations.
