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. In May 2018 we're launching 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.
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 latest programme runs through to Saturday 30 June 2018. To learn more and to register contact a member of our team!
Volunteer Gary Burns was recently presented with his MV100 Award after having successfully committed 100 hours volunteering at Autonomie!
