About us

The Lighthouse is a provider of residential and short break care for children aged 8 -18 years old.  We specialise in working with children with autism and learning disabilities.


Established in 2011 The Lighthouse has grown quickly, creating 2 specially adapted homes in south west London.

Each house is staffed by a team of experienced, dedicated and fully-trained support workers. 


We combine this professional experience with a family perspective to create a dynamic service that strives to offer children and young people with learning disabilities better outcomes and wider horizons.

Our Philosophy

At The Lighthouse we believe in providing a nurturing, caring environment based on a family home. Our needs-led service gives children a voice and supports them to achieve their goals, dreams and aspirations

Our Goals

  • Provide a stimulating environment where children and young people can relax, achieve, build positive friendships with their peers and most importantly have fun!

  • Promote diversity and equal opportunities for children and young people to be seen and heard as individuals.

  • Ensure robust safeguarding procedures and support staff to make positive relationships with children and young people to generate a culture of openness and trust. It is central to everything we do!

  • Build confidence and self-esteem in children and young people, supporting them to recognise the benefits of positive behaviour improving their outcomes.

  • Support children and young people in their education and to make healthy lifestyle choices.


Social workers and parents are pleased with the progress of the young residents and speak highly of a nurturing environment in which young people are encourage to challenge themselves.
