A Big thank you.

There is a selection of good things in the courses to help people do things and to help build up confidence. The staff and volunteers are very helpful and support us with CVs, job advice and different courses.
The textile ‘Spin a Yarn’ course has been a very productive session with helpful staff.To everybody who comes to the Lighthouse Project the enjoyment received was excellent and learning screen printing was a godsend to me and the others in the class.
All the staff help with computers.

The Lighthouse Project over the years has offered us all ample opportunity regarding bettering ourselves, whether this be looking for work, learning about computers or computer courses in general!
I know that I might not be where I am now regarding finding my choice of work as I was pointed in the right direction by one of the many friendly, excellent volunteers and staff, who freely give their time and never question anything or anyone whilst giving their knowledge and help to us all.
So a BIG thank you to every one of them from us all!
And lastly here is to the Lighthouse Project, carrying on from strength to strength for many more years to come.

I joined the Middleton Photography group about 18 months ago and have really enjoyed the times I have spent with the group. I have learned how to use a digital camera on manual settings etc, and have taken some good pictures on our outings and whilst at the club. We have also learnt about Photoshop.
The Lighthouse Project is a fantastic place with lovely people. I feel that more could be done to advertise the place to reach more people as I didn’t find out about it until I retired from work.
I wish the project much success and hope it keeps going for many years.

All the service users are treated with respect and are provided with care and support that meets up to their needs.
I will definitely come again!! I surely enjoyed my stay. Thank you – Merville L – Jan 2015

Will definitely come again – Saahira A – Jan 2015
I became unemployed for the first time in my life in August of last year due to redundancy. I have worked for over 37 years so this was a very daunting experience for me.
Carl, Carole, Liz and all the staff at the Lighthouse Project gave me confidence through the weekly workshops they run to apply for jobs.
I picked up new computer skills which otherwise would not have been possible. I’m now back in work.
Just to say a big thank you for all the kindness you showed me and keep up the good work helping the communities of Middleton and Rochdale.

I am so grateful to Pam and Carl for taking me on as a volunteer. I have made some lovely friends, and met a lot of interesting people from all walks of life. Carole the receptionist has always made me feel so welcome; also it has been a privilege to meet Peter who does our art classes, and Eileen who does the card making. I have made some lovely cards -thank you. I have also learnt quite a lot of new computer skills and through this I have been able to keep in touch with my family. I feel that the Lighthouse Project has really made a positive contribution to Middleton, particularly for those folk who are looking for work. Thank you everyone. Sue H

I could not use a computer at all until I went to the Lighthouse Project, and they have helped me so that I can not use computers to search for work. The staff and volunteers are very friendly, you can say boo to them and they don’t jump. I enjoy going to the Lighthouse Project. Philip H – Oct 2013
