Our grants in the past have covered broad areas. The most important thing is that they must contribute to the landscape and its enjoyment in some way. We are interested in projects that:

improve or enhance the landscape, flora, fauna and cultural heritage of Cumbria

research, restore, raise awareness of cultural or historic features or assets

improve opportunities for people to connect with the landscape, access and enjoy the area, especially for those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to do so, or projects to improve health and wellbeing in the outdoors

research, interpret, celebrate or raise awareness of the special qualities of the area in a sensitive and appropriate manner

promote participation in traditional rural skills

involve the local community or volunteers

make the county and its communities more sustainable so there are less landscape impacts.
