We support young people with complex needs and young families. Devising a creative and innovative person-centred support package for each young person with the ultimate aim of providing positive options and opportunities that they deserve. When the time comes, each young person will move onto their forever home feeling happy, safe and ready to live fully independent lives.
Within Lincolnshire NEST we deliver a dedicated Intensive Need Service which caters for the most complex need young people who require a more nurturing environment.

What our young people say
“When I became homeless, I was scared. I didn’t know what I was doing, or where I was going to go. Social services dropped me outside Nacro, I was worried they wouldn’t let me in. But they did, and I got settled in.” – Alex, Lincolnshire NEST
“On the day I became homeless, I was very upset and scared. At Nacro I was able to have my own space, it opened up so many options in life and gave me a positive outcome, I was able to work on my relationship with my family and I have that now.” – Alice, Lincolnshire NEST
