This project provides support for children and young people in the community, whose families are facing specific negative factors, supporting them to achieve a healthy, secure and independent future.  We can supply more information on request for this important project - it’s a great way to put back something into the community!

These items are for those who wish to make a one-off donation to the work of Lighthouse Trust today. The great thing is that they do not come at a fixed price (although we have shown the total cost against some specific options), you can put your own value on them. All donations are very gratefully received, and every penny is vital for the work of the Trust.
6. One off Donation
Your support enables the Trust to continue its valuable support to children and young people. Without you, the work would simply not be possible. For those who do not yet support the Trust, we hope that you hear or see something that inspires you to get involved, supporting schools and ‘developing young people into responsible adults’.
7. Citizenship RoadShow Week
Each July the Trust runs a ‘Schools Week’, where young people from around the town spend whole days in schools teaching on Citizenship issues using music, drama and creative writing. This is a great resource for the school and provides training for young people in schools work. Costs include materials, AV equipment & transport, and equates to £1,200
8. Transitions Week
Each June the Trust runs a Transitions Week entitled ‘Bridging the Gap, to help Year 6 children who will be moving on to secondary school in the following September. Research has found that 40% of pupils lose motivation and make no progress in the year after transfer. The situation is very similar throughout the (Source – Homerton College and the NFER). This concern rises every year, as many children express their fears and reservations at the prospect of leaving the only school they have known since early childhood and moving to the ‘big school down the road.’  Costs for this 2 week project is £600.
It is great to know that by supporting us in the ways shown above, YOU will be enabling the Trust to positively impact young people, schools and communities. Thank you for all your support!
