When you care for a young person with the Lighthouse Foundation,
you’ll be assisted and guided by an experienced team.
The Lighthouse Foundation’s dedicated team walk alongside you, your foster child and the entire family at every step. It’s the same community approach that we’ve been operating from for the past 30 years.
We believe community is integral because it takes a village to raise a happy, healthy and thriving young person – a village where everyone’s emotional, physical and mental health is nurtured. Drawing on more than 60 years of empirical research and three decades of front-line experience caring for young people in our Lighthouse Homes, we’ve seen first-hand the challenges young people and carers face. When you break it down, our solution is relatively simple but we still need you to make it work.
Play a precious role in a young person’s life. Find out more now.
