The Jubilee Trust was established in 1985 as the result of two generous donations by Lionel Brierly, who was supported by CCS Disability Action during his childhood.
The Trust provides financial support for people with physical disabilities living in Northland, Auckland and the Eastern Bay of Plenty, helping with some of the extra costs disabled people often experience.
It also encourages people with a disability to continue their education, take on new opportunities and enhance their wellbeing. This is an acknowledgment of the strong contribution people with a disability can bring to our society.
