Improving access to advice for all in Cumbria especially those in greatest need


Please note that this website may contain out of date information. It is only updated on a voluntary basis if we receive notification that details have changed

The Cumbria Advice Network ceased operation on 1st April 2018.

We are proud that we were able to continue for nearly 4 years after our original Big Lottery Funding ended, but it has not been possible to secure sufficient funding for us to carry on.

CAN has 161 members and since 2009 we have provided 79 training courses, offering 1,580 places attended by 599 delegates from 123 organisations. We have facilitated 22 networking events attended by 615 delegates and run 5 conferences with 100 delegates per event.  We have also produced 26 e-newsletters and developed and maintained our website.

The website will remain “live” for the next 12 months and will be updated on a voluntary basis.  If you have any amendments, please email:

We would like to thank all our members for their support over the years and wish them all the best for the future.

Our strap-line was “together we CAN make a difference” and we believe that together we DID.
