Green up your lifestyle, your home, your community, your business…

Tap into independent advice and services to help you make your life more sustainable and prevent climate change in Cumbria.

Welcome to the new CAfS website!

Come in and have a good browse around. But please bear with us, as our new online home is still a work in progress.

As you stroll around, we hope you’ll like the parts of the house that are finished. You’ll see that we still have quite a snagging list to get through!

There are new pages and sections to add, some layouts to tidy up, colours to adjust, links to check, events and suppliers to add… phew.

We’d welcome your early feedback, though. We hope it will become your home on the internet, when you’re looking for help to make your lifestyle that little bit more sustainable. Meanwhile, thanks for bearing with us!
