A huge thank you to everyone who voted for Creative Wellbeing in the Community Choices competition.
You helped secure vital funds for our exciting Creative Energy project.
Hundreds voted for us to expand our Creative Wellbeing offer and support even more people across Cumbria.
Planning is now underway for activities in Allerdale, Carlisle and Copeland later this year.
Our venue in Carlisle will be Carlisle Train Station. If you know of, or work at, a venue in Allerdale or Copeland that would be interested in hosting activities, please get in touch.
Thank you to everyone who has made this project possible!
We’ve been shortlisted for funding that would help us deliver free creative activities in West Cumbria!
We would also be bolstering our delivery in Carlisle too so, wherever you are, it’s a great time to support us.

We are looking for everybody who has been involved in Creative Wellbeing, in any way, to come along and share your story about what Creative Wellbeing has been for you, how you got involved or how it has supported someone you care for.
Come on down to support us and hear your voice on the radio!
Well, it’s all over now… and it was fantastic! Our first foray into West Cumbria was an unqualified success. We had a smashing time, met loads of lovely people and delivered, even if we do say so ourselves, many excellent activities.
A full ten-week programme in Cockermouth, Maryport, Whitehaven and Cleator Moor has helped re-affirm our conviction that Creative Wellbeing is needed and welcomed wherever we can deliver it.
Many, many thanks to all the people who participated, the venues who graciously hosted us and to Cumbria County Council for funding us — we couldn’t have done without you!
We’ll be looking to make our provision in West Cumbria a more permanent proposition. Watch this space…
If you can help, or know someone who can, please get in touch so we can go west again.
It’s hard to believe, but we’ve only three weeks to go before the end of our initial West Cumbria Sessions.
We’ve always room for more participants so, if you know anyone who might like to come along to a variety of creative sessions in Maryport, Cockermouth, Whitehaven and Cleator Moor, let them know.
Don’t forget, we have three sessions every week in Carlisle too!
We’ve secured funding to take the project the Allerdale and Copeland.
We’ll be taking Creative Wellbeing to Wigton, Frizington, Maryport, Whitehaven, Workington and more to be confirmed.
We’re still finalising the timetable but we’ll keep you posted. Sign up for our newsletter and tell your friends in the west to keep an eye open.
