Asset Based Community Development in South Lakeland

“Productively Connecting Unconnected Local Assets”

The Cumbria County Council Community Development Team in South Lakeland work closely with the Locality Public Health Manager on activity that contributes to achieving the outcomes set out in the Council Plan 2018-2022, in particular:

  • People in Cumbria are healthy and safe, and
  • Places in Cumbria are well-connected and thriving.

Living With and Beyond Cancer – Cancer Chat Cafes

The Living With and Beyond Cancer project is trialling a series of drop in chat groups between now and the end of March for people who are affected by cancer. Our hope is that by bringing people together in a friendly and informal way it will encourage a feeling of commonality and allow people to speak freely about their experiences.  Trained and supportive volunteers will be there to host, listen and link people to local help and support when required.
