The Welcome Back campaign

The Welcome Back Fund

The government's £56m Welcome Back Fund aims to boost the look and feel of high streets and seaside towns, and help councils prepare for the safe return of shoppers and tourists, following the pandemic.

How we are spending our funding

Copeland has been awarded £159,000 from the Welcome Back Fund. So far, we have commissioned stunning video footage to use in marketing the area, installed community picnic benches throughout the borough, distributed litter picking kits to all our communities, and created useful maps for visitors. We have lots more planned - follow us on social media or subscribe to our newsletter, Copeland Matters, to hear the latest.
