About us

We are a voluntary, non-profit making association with charitable status specialising in the provision of housing and support services for older and vulnerable people in the county of Lincolnshire and surrounding areas.

A history of responding to the needs of the elderly

LACE Housing was founded by Frank Eccleshare O.B.E. in 1964 to help meet the housing and support needs of older people within the City of Lincoln.

Following a survey initiated by the City of Lincoln Council, Frank – a master builder and City Councillor at that time – was challenged by his wife to respond to the housing needs of the elderly within the city.
