“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

– Gandhi

SignPost is designed to support the development of a distinctive and robust socio-economic culture rooted in West Cumbria and Cumbria. We believe a programme that facilitates strong business collaboration, partnering with anchor institutions while building an innovative, adaptive and responsive economy in which local social impact is integral to the areas success.


  • Resilient Economies: the outcome will be resilient and inclusive growing local economies, creating and securing new opportunities, i.e. a local market which is innovative, responsive and interconnected within local communities.
  • Thriving Communities: the outcome will be to create communities which thrive through self-reliance and independence, are inclusive to the needs of all community members, and create a place that people want to live and work in.
  • Sustainable Incomes: this outcome will be to increase aspiration and improved employability of West Cumbrian residents. The programme will include a life-cycle approach, from early years education, disengaged young people to reskilling existing workforce and supporting older people and those with a disability to enter the workplace.

“We gained a lot from developing a shared vision of what can be achieved with a fresh mindset, we now need to set time aside to make it happen.”
