I’ve just started work, and it is thanks to the Lighthouse Project and their good work and helping me with my job searching.

A Big thank you.

Ged - I've started work

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.

Donald - Builds your confidence

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.

Ronnie - a Lighthouse Project tribute

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.

The Lighthouse Project is a lovely environment, staff and team are very friendly and caring. I settled in very well when I did my health and social care work experience placement.

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

Saahira - Enjoyed my time here

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.

Debbie W – Jan 2014

Debbie - Keep up the good work

I have been helped with my CV, cover letter and various job applications which I would otherwise have had trouble with doing on my own.

For this and for use of the computers and facilities at the Lighthouse Project I am very grateful.

This is a fantastic charity, Middleton is very fortunate to have the Lighthouse Project.

Gail L – Oct 2014

Gail - I am very grateful to the Lighthouse

Thank you so much to everyone for the help that you gave me at the Lighthouse Project just when I needed it, and for the use of the facilities to help me keep looking for work.

I’ve now found a job and want to thank you for your support.

Rob - Thanks for the help


The Lighthouse Project has been an inspiration to me, I have been out of work since last September and they have helped me immensely putting a CV together and cover letter to apply for job vacancies. Also I have been involved in many courses they advertise on a weekly basis and two that stand out for me are the Feel More Positive self-confidence course, and the Online Basics computer course; for me they were a must and have helped build my confidence up again. If it wasn’t for the Lighthouse Project I don’t know what I would be doing right now. Friendly caring people who make you feel welcome any time in a relaxed environment. Michelle G – April 2014
