What is Linkage?

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

We were established in 1976 and owe our 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.
