Lilburn Hall

5 Lilburn Hall opened in November 2007 as a result of a partnership between Southern Health & Social Care Trust and ULIDIA Housing Association.  This enabled three adults with a learning disability to move into their own tenancies and be supported by staff. A further house was opened in November 2008 to accommodate three more tenants.  The scheme is made up of 2 dorma bungalows, which is rented by the individuals from the Housing Association which is now Choice Housing. Due to the tenants changing needs both houses provide 24-hour staff presence which offers support and guidance to the tenants in their home.

Lilburn Hall is situated approximately 2 miles from Lurgan Town centred just off the Belfast Road and close to Lurgan Park, in a small cul-de-sac consisting of two houses.
