About the organisation developmentplusĀ (the trading name of Lincoln Community Development Worker Project, formerly known locally as LCDP), is a community development organisation which has worked across the county of Lincolnshire since 1997. We are a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.

All of our work in Lincoln and Lincolnshire is based on the values of community development, working alongside people and not imposing our views on them but valuing their skills and abilities, ensuring their participation and providing opportunities for their personal development.

Action Plan

The NSPA believes that everyone has a part to play in reducing the number of suicides and better supporting those affected by suicide. The NSPA's Action Plans are about demonstrating this; by publically sharing what work your organisation is doing to tackle issues relating to suicide, it demonstrates the broad range of actions an organisation can take - no matter how big or small - and encourages other organisations to become members themselves and take action.

The NSPA Declaration lists seven outcomes to reduce suicide and improve support for those bereaved or affected by suicide that it believes its members can work together to achieve (see "The difference we aim to make").

How does your organisation contribute to preventing suicide and supporting those affected by it? - Empowering residents in the community to acknowledge, talk about and address their health issues, including signposting them to the relevant health professionals.
- Providing programmes of training and support to enable individuals to overcome personal barriers.
- Working with strategic partners to tackle deprivation across Lincoln and Greater Lincoln.
- Developing volunteers, to ensure sustainability of support groups / community groups.
What are your current priorities? - Getting to know a community- of interest, identity, location
- Finding out what they see as their needs and issues that concern them
- Bringing people together to agree their aims and make plans to realise them
- Encouraging people to work together effectively in a group and with other groups and communities
- Assisting groups to decide how best to organise themselves- formal or informal systems and structures
- Supporting people together to learn from each other and to evaluate their activities
- Learning from their own practice through critical reflection as part of their continuous professional development
What challenges are you currently facing? - Multi-agency working
- Signposting to agencies that will support people who are suicidal and/or using substances
- Funding
