With help from Cumbria County Council we have established a Centre for Independent Living in Carlisle. Located on St. Nicholas Street, Botchergate in the centre of Carlisle and has particularly good parking at the rear of the building.
There are a wide range of activities and services available at the CIL, including the Disability Aids Recycling Project, computer training, and job preparation training and support. We also supply disability aids on prescription or for sale.
Services include DaCE Support Services, including all aspects of Independent Living Advice.
Becky Murray co-ordinates the development of new services and activities at the CIL. Recent activities include an Open Day promoting a wide range of local services and attended by many local people.
James Lands is an assistant in the CIL.
Meeting Room available
We have a meeting room which is free for the use of local community groups or voluntary organisations. The room can hold approximately 10 people.
Contact the CIL if you are interested in booking the room.
