About Us

What’s is the North & West Cumbria FLAG?

The FLAG is a local action group dedicated to supporting the sustainable development of the ‘fishing communities’ of North & West Cumbria.

Membership of the FLAG is free and open to any organisation or individual who shares our Vision and supports the FLAG Development Strategy.

How do I join the FLAG?

Full details are provided on our membership page.

What area is covered by the FLAG?

The FLAG operates along the coastal strip of North & West Cumbria, recently extended to include  Bowness on Solway in the North down to Millom in the South. You can see the previous FLAG area on the map to the right, from Silloth to Ravenglass.

How does the FLAG operate?

For efficient and effective delivery of the strategy objectives all funding decisions are made by the FLAG Board. This Board is elected annually by the FLAG membership. All Board members serve on a voluntary basis. In addition the Board may co-opt non-voting advisors to provide specialist guidance. The Board meets approximately every six weeks throughout the year.
Day to day operation of the FLAG is coordinated by a small programme & administration team.

The current EFF Axis 4 Fund is now closed to new project applications, however, the FLAG team currently remain in post to administrate project claims and continue to ensure the smooth running of the FLAG programme.

Please contact the FLAG office if you require further information.
