Chairman welcomes new members of staff

Autonomie has recently welcomed five new members of staff to help support young people living with a disability.

The new members of staff are part of a team that will deliver a new community-based pilot project to support disabled young people aged between 14 and 25.

The three-year project called What Next? will be delivered at the charity's newly opened centre LILAC House (Linked Independent Living and Advice Centre) in the south of the city.
