Support for even more young people

2018 is a very exciting time at Autonomie. We have opened a new centre, LILAC House (Linked Independent Living and Advice Centre), in south Belfast. We have extended our team and are enhancing our services. We've launched a new community project called What Next? - A 3-year pilot project in partnership with Big Lottery Fund's Empowering Young People.  We will support even more children and young people, parents, carers and siblings in the Greater Belfast area.
