Community Interest Luton

Community Interest Luton (CIL) is a not-for-profit company that aims to work in partnership with local third and public sector organisations and businesses, to coordinate activities meeting shared objectives of reducing unemployment, raising skills levels, increasing volunteering, and promoting educational opportunities.

The company was set up following several years of voluntary activity by the directors during which they formed strong and effective relationships across the various sectors. However, in order to maintain momentum and build on the successful outcomes already achieved, a formal structure was required that would enable strategic management and partnership development of projects.

To find out more about sponsoring an award category, contributing towards the celebration evening or other ways you can get involved please contact us by calling 01582 573471 or by emailing: mostaque@ciluton.co.uk
