Parent 2020

I just wanted to contact you to let you know how very very grateful I am for the unbelievable change you have brought to us as a family. You seemed to be able to give my son ways to open up, off load and make sense of things that no one else could manage, and you were able to intervene and give me help.

Safeguarding Team

A young person shared that The Lighthouse has changed her perspective of care and that 'it was much better than I expected'. The young person stated she felt cared for and safe at The Lighthouse. The staff member who fed this information back stated the young person's face 'lit up' when The Lighthouse was mentioned.

Safeguard Support worker

I feel privileged as a professional that I have been able to see the significant change in a young person at The Lighthouse that you have supported her with. I would like to say what an amazing job you have done. I am immensely proud of her and think it is lovely how she is now supporting other young people at The Lighthouse.
