This is a free webinar for Natspec members only. A recording of the webinar will be made available for everyone on our YouTube channel shortly after the event.

Linkage Community Trust and partners have pioneered a model of partnership working that is now being used as a national exemplar by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The model is based on an original project that developed educational provision and community involvement, alongside heritage restoration. This was the first time the HLF had worked with a learning disabilities partner as well as a County Council; City of Lincoln council. Martin Shelton, Principal of Linkage College, will explain how this whole-area approach has created a new college campus in Lincolnshire to address gaps in provision for young people aged 16-24 with SEND, restored a local park and developed work-related learning and employment opportunities for learners and local people.

Linkage College is the winner of the Natspec 2021 award for Partnership Working.
