Young people's views and experiences of The Lighthouse:


Long stay young person said- “ The lighthouse is really great, I want this house and by the time I get old, I want this house to be famous.  The home treats me very well especially coming in and out of care and this home has been the highlight of being a child”  No one cared about me before but now I have found a place that looks after me and cares for me”.  ( CI 15.09.15)


Short stay young person commented that- “The Lighthouse is kind and helpful, and I enjoy coming here when my foster carers are away.  I get to do lots of different activities and am always kept busy.  It’s a nice home to spend time in and stay whilst my family is away”.  (JM 17.09.15)


Long stay young person commented that- “ The Lighthouse is cool, the staff are really nice and have helped me become an adult.  I will miss them all when I leave. The Lighthouse has taught me lots of things that I will remember forever and be able to use as an adult”.  (AP 17.09.15)

They are flexible in approach and have always kept professioanls and parents aware of the young person's progress and raised any concerns in a timely manner.( 25.09.15 )


"The home has been exceptional in their understanding of the young person's needs and has helped immensely within the realm of transition." ( 25.09.15 )


"They support the young person with challenging behaviour in a way that respects him but sensitively manages very difficult situations, demonstrating that he is the centre of every consideration.
