Transforming the lives of children in care

Lighthouse ensures that children in care have the same opportunities as everyone else by creating life changing education-focused children’s homes.

We believe that children growing up in residential care should go on to achieve great things and lead fulfilling lives. They have the right to support that helps them discover their potential.


Education with high aspirations, responsive to children’s individual needs, should be a priority for every child in residential care.

We need to work together to transform the lives of children in care and close the care gap for good.
