Lancashire Care was established in 2002 as a mental health and learning disability provider. In 2011, the Trust incorporated a range of community health and wellbeing services from neighbouring provider organisations, extending its portfolio to include a range of community based services.
In 2019, the Trust acquired mental health and learning disabilities services in South Cumbria from Cumbria Partnership Foundation Trust and became Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust (LSCFT).
The Trust provides health and wellbeing services for a population of around 1.8 million people and employs over 6000 staff. They work closely with the adult community services, to ensure that all patients have a high-quality service, whether they are in hospital, in the community, or their own home supported with LVP volunteers.
