Community groups working in Allerdale and/or Copeland could apply for up to £500 thanks to the exciting new initiative ‘Community Support in West Cumbria’, which is being administered by Cumbria CVS.
To apply for a grant from this programme community groups must be providing services for: adults aged over 65 or vulnerable adults aged under 65; and for people that require services or support to help them remain independent at home.
Cumbria CVS supports the many wonderful people who have kept, and continue to keep Cumbria’s Community Meals Service on the road.
Cumbria County Council has recently introduced changes to the way meals are provided to customers – bringing in private providers wherever possible. The process has been a difficult and disruptive one for the volunteers, but the vast majority have stayed involved with what they see as a vital service for some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
