From modest beginnings in February 1994 the Coromandel Independent Living Trust (CILT), has become an integral and much valued part of life in the upper Coromandel. Although when it was first set up the trust focused on providing services for people with disabilities, its range of offerings has since become much broader.
CILT is now an innovative Charitable Trust working collectively for the community in the disability, housing & education sectors. The current focus is on providing education, training and employment opportunities, and supporting those less advantaged to get involved with, and claim their place in, the community.
