Boys Sleepover at Lilac House 'Best boys night ever'

Access to short-term Independent Living at Lilac House is a key focus of our What Next? programme supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.

The programme gives young people with additional needs aged 19 - 25 who feel ready a chance to develop and learn new independent living skills, skills such as convenient cookery including preparing breakfast, using the dishwasher, microwave and using adapted utensils if required.
