Carlisle Overseas Aid Trust (COAT) is a well known charity that has being going strong now for over three decades. We are a small locally based charity that uses all money donated to the trust towards helping others. Over the past years we have continued to support projects and communities in some of the poorest regions of the world.


The Carlisle Overseas Aid Trust has raised money for many projects to help those who need it – list of recent projects can be found under the “Current Projects” title and older projects can be found under “Previous Projects”.



We raise as much money as possible for many developing countries through a variety of fundraising events. Look out for future events here.
