Welcome to Duddon Parish Council

The Organisation

Duddon Parish is situated in South West Cumbria, mainly within the Lake District National Park, and was formed in 1976 to incorporate the old parishes of Broughton West, Seathwaite with Dunnerdale and Angerton.

The Parish

The Parish stretches from the summit of Wrynose Pass in the North to the Duddon Estuary on Morecambe Bay in the South.

The main town within the parish is the small ancient market town of Broughton-in-Furness, which has a Charter dating back to 1575. 

The Valleys
Contained within the wide boundaries of the parish are the Duddon Valley, much beloved by Wordsworth, the secluded Lickle Valley, the beautiful Woodland Valley and the marshes of Angerton on the Duddon Estuary.

The Communities
The main hamlets in these valleys comprise Woodland, Broughton Mills, Ulpha, Dunnerdale, Seathwaite, Cockley Beck & Angerton.

Locally, Cumbria County Council's Cabinet yesterday approved £2m fundingto support a range of measures, including more support linked to free school meals, including increases in school uniform grants:

We know there are likely to people who are eligible for free schools meals who aren't currently claiming them - so it'd be really helpful if people could publicise the information about how to do so, and the additional benefits that are linked to them - all in the press release above.

NEWS RELEASE – Announcing a New Service

Admin and More introduces a brand new service that gives assistance to people applying to the Access to Work Scheme.

Today, Admin and More announced the launch of their Access to Work Assistance Scheme an assistance service to truly give people a disability a cost effective and convenient way to apply for the scheme and relieve the stress that the Access to Work process can bring when going through the process.

“We’d do anything to help our customers” said Elizabeth Wright, Director of Admin and More, “so as soon as we found out that many of our customers were in serious need of assistance to help them apply for Access to Work as well as the ongoing claims process that wouldn’t break the bank, but would guarantee professional results, we knew we had to do something.

Admin and More’s new Access to Work Assistance Scheme is designed to overcome the problem of the stress and the very long process of applying to Access to Work. We help people with a disability by taking the hard work from them for the application process and claims process. We know from experience and the clients we work with that the process for applying for Access to Work can be stressful and can in some instances put people off from applying.

“The response from our customers has been better than we could have imagined” said Elizabeth Wright “not only are our customers enjoying professional results, they’re finding that they can free up their own time and spend more time on running their businesses whilst we apply for their support.

Business owners with a disability could be eligible for funding through the Access to Work scheme, which helps cover the cost of any practical support a person with an impairment may need to start or stay in work, as well as funding to help pay for any adaptations to the working environment or installation of any special equipment
