Teen’s transition information event – Cafe Renoir

| 17th March, 2016

A massive thank you to all who attended our first teens information event in partnership with the Belfast Trust. This event was a great success and a wonderful opportunity for teens and parents to hear first hand how transition from the children’s to the adult’s service works and the perfect time to ask live questions to the team. If you would have liked to attend the event but were unable to, we made some notes!!
