Working Together

Working Together is a newly established approach to working with third party organisations to enable and empower communities to contribute to the upkeep of their local environment through safe, authorised and well managed working.

Cumbria County Council will be looking to work with third party organisations to allow for;

  • Annual agreement/s to be put into place to allow for risk managed activities to be carried out by an authorised appointed person. 
  • Organised volunteer days to take place which will enable communities to work towards their on-going desire to self-help.


Work has now begun to start to develop these agreements, through the Working Together programme. As the programme progresses, key updates will be provided on this webpage.
