Bowness and Windermere Community Care Trust
Bowness and Windermere Community Care Trust (BWCCT) is a registered charity which exists to promote the well-being of the local community by engaging, responding, caring and serving.
BWCCT deliver a range of services with the support of volunteers and paid staff. These services include a weekly luncheon club and a lunchtime meals delivery service for older people, “Windermeals” . Unfortunately due to a shortage of volunteers the Windermeals service has had to be suspended.

Recent projects have included work with our local Primary Schools providing creative dance, music making and inter-generational projects involving the schools and residents at Goodly Dale Cottage Homes, Applethwaite Green and Birthwaite Flats.
