Better Tomorrows



  • About

Better Tomorrows launched in the summer of 2021 and is a three-year programme encouraging people within Cumbria to become accredited in youth work and substantially increase the number of young people having access to support from youth workers to help them reach their full potential.

This unique initiative will provide accredited training to more than a hundred people as well as offer grants of up to £25,000 a year for three years to community organisations setting up or providing new youth work opportunities for local young people.

Spearheaded by David Beeby, High Sheriff of Cumbria 2021-22 and Cumbria Community Foundation Chairman, Better Tomorrows works in partnership with Cumbria Youth Alliance and local funders including Cumbria Community Foundation and Francis C Scott Charitable Trust, who have also invested in the programme.

Better Tomorrows’ will address the shortage in the provision of trained youth workers across the county, equipping a new generation to reach out and support our young people, building a sustainable model that will continue to deliver long after this programme has ended.
