Living in Cumbria has some serious upsides. It can also be tough. Really tough. The beautiful landscape hides intense poverty and lack of opportunity. Two things that fuel each other.

Cumbria has a strong history of community – people working together to face challenges. Cumbria Community Foundation exists to continue and build that.

We bring people who love Cumbria together to make our county stronger. So local people can meet the challenges they face and can achieve their potential.
