Third Sector Representatives Appointed

Cumbria Third Sector Network has nominated Patricia Livsey, Chief Executive for Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, as the third sector representative for the Cumbria LEP Board and Colin Ranshaw, Chairman of South Lakeland Hydrotherapy Trust to represent the third sector on the Health and Wellbeing Board. We are delighted to confirm that both Patricia and Colin have accepted their roles – congratulations to you both.

Chair and Deputy required

The Cumbria Arts and Culture Network is looking to recruit both a Chair and a Deputy Chair to support the network’s work with art and culture activities in Cumbria within the third sector. We are looking for candidates who have experience and knowledge of working within this sector in Cumbria, to help build this network and advocate on behalf of its members. There is a £1500 honorarium for the role of Chair (dependant on funding going forwards).

Rebuilding Together

Rebuilding Together is a three year project, led by Cumbria CVS and delivered in partnership with Cumbria Action for Sustainability (CAfS) and Action with Communities in Cumbria (ACT), which  was awarded over £1 million by the Big Lottery Fund after Storm Desmond to help Cumbrian communities become more resilient and to support local people, communities and organisations to prepare for similar events in the future.
