Community projects urged to apply for Sellafield funding

If so, you could be eligible for the latest round of grant funding from Sellafield Ltd’s social impact fund.

Time’s running out, though. The deadline for applications is Sunday, 28 February 2021.

Examples of projects we’ve helped in the past include:

  • a programme to help young carers
  • support for West Cumbria Domestic Violence
  • funding for a Copeland Youth Network employability skills programme

Tracey West, from our Social Impact Team, said:

We’re really keen to hear from any projects helping to address social and economic needs in Copeland and Allerdale.

We also fund feasibility studies. So, if you’re considering a larger project, we could fund your initial research to ensure its viability before you then seek further funding.

It’s often helpful to discuss your project with us before applying. Anyone wanting to do so should email us at
