What We Do

Friends of the Lake District is the only organisation working solely to protect and enhance the landscape in Cumbria and the Lake District.

Landscape protection and enhancement is at the heart of what we do.

We seek to influence decision-makers to understand the importance of conserving and enhancing the irreplaceable landscape of Cumbria and the Lake District .

Our campaigning issues have the common theme of protection and conservation of the special qualities of the landscape and natural beauty of Cumbria and the Lake District.


We work to:

  • encourage vibrant rural communities, and develop improved links with them, within a living, working and sustainable landscape, especially in the uplands

  • demonstrate good practice across the whole range of our work and particularly through land ownership

  • improve the Cumbrian landscape through an Environmental Improvement Grants scheme.

We work closely with local organisations including the Lake District National Park Authority (we are a member of the Lake District National Park Partnership), Cumbria County Council, the National Trust, Natural England, the Environment Agency and Action for Communities in Cumbria.

And we liase with national and regional bodies including the Campaign for National Parks, Campaign to Protect Rural England, Ramblers' Association and the Open Spaces Society.
