We’ve so many local community heroes across Cumbria; this award is open to volunteers working in their local community to care for places enjoyed by all. Maybe you’re running a community garden, or helping with the local youth groups; or keeping the community clean and tidy; or perhaps you were involved in enabling communities to recover from the 2015 floods.

Your actions might be motivated by a need for change in your local area or you might have overcome personal challenge to make a difference to your neighbourhood. 

We are looking for individuals or groups with dedication, organisation and really inspire those they work with who have positive impact on their local area.
