Grants available for community groups

Cumbria County Council makes grants available in our area through the South Westmorland Neighbourhood Forum to support projects organised and run by local community groups which benefit the local area. (Ideally groups should be already doing some of their own fundraising.)

Grants have been awarded to playgroups, sports groups, youth clubs, environmental groups and community halls in the past, mainly to support buying equipment or do some refurbishment. If you have a project in mind and would like to find out more contact Kelly Alty on 01539 713447 or email

The deadline for completed applications for the next Neighbourhood Forum meeting is Friday 30 January.
