At the Wordsworth Trust we are always looking for new ways of working with our local community and building strong relationships.

Whether you would like to arrange a visit or would like us to visit you, just get in touch and we are happy to discuss your ideas.  We have delivered talks across Cumbria to WIs, local history societies, U3As and many more, from Carlisle to Cartmel and Appleby to Aspatria.

We have recently developed a partnership with Leonard Cheshire Disability who manage a care home in Windermere.  We have been delivering a shared poetry reading group and residents are encouraged to join in in any way they would like; read or write a poem, paint a picture, sing a song…anything goes!  Chris Hogg, Volunteer Co-ordinator, Leonard Cheshire Disability said, “It makes a real difference to everyone’s day and gives people something to look forward to.”

If you would like more information then please contact us for the attention of Susan Allen, Community Outreach Officer, or phone on 015394 35544.
