Lighthouse Project WLTDO Tower buildingPeople are always asking us ‘What we do here at the Lighthouse?’ and sometimes that is a difficult question to answer, not because we don’t do anything but because we do so much. The challenge is often working out where to start explaining all about what we do do.

The pages below, and the Related Pages links on the right provide introductions or summaries about the resources and activities that we arrange ourselves, including those which other organisations host with us.

Because we believe in partnership working you will soon notice that we don’t actually run everything ourselves at the Lighthouse Project, we also share the work with others.

These pages will give you an overview about our activities but they don’t tell the whole story so for our up-to-date ‘news’ you need to explore the related category menus on the HOME Page.
