About us

Developing young people into responsible adults.


Lighthouse Trust (Northampton) was formed in September 1997 and was registered as a charity on 21st October 1998 with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (No. 1072069).  Lighthouse Trust has a view to establish an ongoing support to children and young people in the community.  The trust has a Christian ethos, but is committed in serving children and young people regardless of creed, race or faith.





The Director of the trust, Richard Kinning, has worked with children and young people in various capacities including clubs and schools for many years.  Education support began with just nine visits in 1990 and the work has grown to around 300 visits a year.


The trust is overseen by a Director working in cooperation with the Trustees and they are involved in over thirty five primary schools.  We are active in community projects, as well as school and church support, in and around Northampton.
