Downtown has been part of the Lisburn community since 1988, providing long-term support to adults in the Lisburn area. Downtown is a community hub where all are welcome to come, socialise with others, learn new skills and gain vital information in a relaxed, non-judging atmosphere. Lisburn Downtown Centre offers support to people struggling with a mental health problem, a mild learning disability, isolation, and loneliness.
