About Us

Citizens for Inclusive Living

‘Citizens for Inclusive Living' (CIL) is a Registered Society working for the dignity and welfare of people with mental, intellectual disabilities in Chandigarh tricity. The society comprises psychiatrists, psychologists, special educators, social workers, students, professionals, teachers, persons with disabilities and their caregivers and concerned citizens.

Our aim is to make the tricity more inclusive and caring for persons with mental disabilities, as well as other marginalised groups. We campaigned asking the government to envision a special and unique project under UT Administration, an assisted-living group home to be planned and managed in partnership with the parents, mental health professionals and professional organizations.
