The Lighthouse

Covid-19 Update — The Lighthouse

In light of the ongoing situation relating to COVID-19, The Lighthouse are taking steps to ensure they can continue to support service users during this time. Their focus remains the well-being of staff, children, young people and families who use The Lighthouse, as well as supporting the wider community. The Lighthouse made the difficult decision to close The Lighthouse building from 5pm on Friday 20th March. No appointments are currently taking place at the premises and the premises is closed until further notice. Children, young people and families already receiving support from The Lighthouse will continue to have telephone/video contact with their allocated workers. Referrals will still be received by The Lighthouse for advice and consultation. Children and young people that need face-to-face appointments, will have the opportunity for an initial assessment in a paediatric outpatients clinic.

The Lighthouse will deliver medical, advocacy, social care, police, and therapeutic support to children and young people who have been victims of sexual abuse.

How to make a referral?
