The partnership aims to support up to 800 young people around the agreed agenda of addictions, rurality & isolation, mental health & wellbeing, poverty, and aspirations & transitions.Cumbria Youth Alliance is the lead partner in this multi-agency project, with commissioning and budgetary responsibility.

We have commissioned Third Sector organisations who have experience of working with young people in the below areas and can offer a service around:

Organisations have suitably qualified staff and volunteers to deliver their service and play a key role in the success of the project, making a real difference to young people’s lives by improving their well-being & future prospects.
