Community participation overview
Communities can get involved with their local area and are supported by local organisations.
South Lakeland District Council (SLDC) and parishes are working together to improve Parish Development and SLDC also has a new Have Your Say page offering support and information to get involved in the work of the Council and your local community.
Cumbria County Council's Area Support Team work alongside County Councillors and other Council Departments to ensure that the voices of the local community are heard.
For information and application forms for grant funding for local projects, the Cumbria Community Foundation are an independent charity which supports people and organisations wishing to invest in the community.
