SDF aims to support projects that result in positive benefits for communities within the National Park. A case study and some other recent examples feature below.

A hall for the people

A grant of £9,415 helped refurbish the main entrance of the People's Hall in Sedbergh, improving the sustainability of this important community building through better thermal insulation.

A new extension, providing the local community with a gym and fitness centre, was achieved with the help of a separate £9,464 contribution and this is now open to the public.
