Support even more young people with disabilities 

For the past 8 years, Autonomie (formally the Lilac Service) has supported hundreds of children and young people with disabilities. As demand for our services increases we have opened a new centre in south Belfast. 

LILAC House (Linked Independent Living and Advice Centre) allows us to support even more children and young people with disabilities and allied additional needs as well provide support to their parents, siblings and extended families.

LILAC House will deliver programmes on building self-confidence, life skills, networking to build friendships and even a chance to try independent living at purpose-designed units on the premises. To learn more about our plans click here.
