Tourism and conservation working in partnership.

The Lake District Foundation

Big News!

In December 2017 Nurture Lakeland will become The Lake District Foundation. 

For information about the Launch event visit: //

This is an exciting time in the history of our charity. Following World Heritage Inscription and the increase in visitors to the Lake District, our trustees felt this was the time to raise our ambitions and increase our impact.

What will be different?

We will have a new name and website. The squirrels are working on this now. Do you like our new logo?


We will broaden our reach to include fundraising and grant making in 3 key areas  - Landscape, Wildlife and Cultural Heritage. This meets the key aims of the Lake District National Park Partnership of which we are a proud member. Read more about them here: Lake District National Park Partnership


We have a new Director to take us on this exciting journey. Sarah Swindley started in post in September and would love to meet anyone interested in supporting us. Contact Sarah Swindley


What will be the same?

We will continue the great work of Nurture Lakeland, growing visitor giving to fund important projects.

We will work with visitors and businesses to support sustainable tourism initiatives.

We will continue to work with our amazing beneficiary projects such as these.


If you are already a supporter, we want to continue to work with you. If you aren’t - we would love to hear from you!
