Empowering young people with additional needs to develop the skills to live independently and achieve their potential
We promote the development and delivery of high quality work with young people with disabilities and their families and it's a very exciting time for Autonomie.
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.
What Next? Programme
Our new What Next? pilot project in partnership with Big Lottery Fund's Empowering Young People runs every Wednesday and Thursday. Promoting positive mental health, this fun-packed activities programme offers young people living with physical disabilities and mild/moderate learning disabilities aged between 16 and 25 a chance to learn life skills, gain education and work focus training, try independent living and more!
Our Freedom2Choose project offers young people between the ages 16 - 25, recreation and social space, skills development and supported events/activities independently of families and carers. The programme restarts Saturday 15 September 2018. To learn more and to register speak to a member of our team!
Volunteer Gary Burns was recently presented with his MV100 Award after having successfully committed 100 hours volunteering at Autonomie!
