Why we are different

As a charitable organisation we are set up to bring benefit to our local community, and our mission and values are important to us, so, when you book one of our rooms you can be encouraged that you are not just renting a room, but you are also contributing to a wider work which helps and supports the vulnerable, isolated, those struggling with unemployment, housing, finances, debts, poverty, crisis, and other types of difficulty.

Through our community focused projects such as Middleton Central Foodbank, the Lighthouse Money Advice debt service, Lighthouse Pantry, and the Lighthouse Project itself, to name just a few.
