'The Hub' is our latest endeavour
A current focus of CILT is the establishment of a Community Hub to ensure further development and sustainability of our services into the future.
This project is to provide a modern, enduring, collaborative environment where the social and community needs of the people of the Upper Coromandel Peninsula can be met; this includes health and wellbeing through providing space for health professional and sports, recreation and community clubs.
To complement the delivery of social and community services it is proposed to provide hot desk space and facilities for work from home businesses, and an Impact Hub. This co-working environment will create opportunities for local entrepreneurs and small business owners to increase their work opportunities and create higher value work. For an good overview of the advantages of co-working spaces, read this article here.
