“Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic we’ve seen our businesses, local government and communities pulling together in remarkable ways. The Investment Alliance for Cumbria applies that pace and ‘can do’ attitude to the next wave of investments in the region.”

Trudy Harrison MP for Copeland


The Invest in Cumbria Alliance (IICA) is a voluntary group whose purpose is to help commercial investors place meaningful, sustainable, Social Value proposals at the heart of their investment plans for Cumbria, so that everyone wins.

They provide investors with informal access to some of the best hearts and minds in Cumbria to help shape impactful Social Value Plans, co-create them with the community, so the investment succeeds commercially and on a socio-economic basis for our residents and small businesses.


They have created a powerful group of supporters including some of Cumbria's leaders in Parliament, Local Government, industry, professional services, Third Sector and aspire to 000’s of residents and 00’s of small businesses getting on board too, so offering true representation of Cumbrian business and community thinking, opinions and ideas to investors wanting to create Social Value Plans that will make a difference.


And the brilliant news is they've appointed The Community Data Co-op as their community engagement partner.
