LIGHTHOUSE COMMUNITY 

Providing practical support, arts & cultural activities and opportunities to develop skills for wellbeing, Liverpool Lighthouse provides programmes that work to tackle the root causes of disadvantage in our community and create thriving communities of people living more fulfilled lives.

ARTS FOR WELLBEING

Your wellbeing has an impact on everything you do. 

When you are struggling with physical or mental wellbeing it affects your family, relationships, work and ability to achieve the goals you want in life. 

Our arts for wellbeing activities aim to help you improve your wellbeing through developing confidence, self-esteem, expressing yourself and having lots of fun connecting with others. 

Our activities are designed to be accessible and fun for everyone, you never have to have taken part before. Whether it's drama, singing, poetry or crafting, our arts for wellbeing groups have something fun to try for everyone and lots of activities you can bring or do with babies and toddlers too. 

Come and check out our open access groups where lots of people just like you will be trying things out for the first time. They run Tuesday -Thursday from 10am-3pm. Find the timetable for this term in the link below. 

PRACTICAL SUPPORT

Sometimes we all need a bit of extra help. 

Maybe you need some help affording fresh food for you or your family, or some advice on debt, budgeting or housing, or maybe you just need someone to chat with about the stresses of life and your mental health who can listen to how you feel, support you and help you find services that can help.

 

Maybe you need somewhere warm to spend the day this winter to help keep those heating bills down. 

 

Whatever help you need you can find it at Liverpool Lighthouse. This autumn/winter our drop in which runs 10am-3pm Tuesday to Thursday will be a safe, warm space you can come and spend time, get free tea and coffee, access our fresh food pantry and some days get a free hot meal. You will also find the help and support you need from our friendly staff and volunteers. 

While you are here you may want to explore some of our arts for wellbeing activities too to help you work on your long-term mental health and wellbeing.

"I first came to Liverpool Lighthouse to the Family Connect programme where we would have social events, cooking classes and so much more, which helped me with the situation I was in and helped develop some key skills. I have been a part of Liverpool Lighthouse ever since and I am now employed by them, so it really has come full circle and Liverpool Lighthouse has had a massive impact on my life."

Emi Gibbs - Events Administrator

Please can you pass on my deep and long-lasting thanks to the amazing women who were on the stage today; my life has been touched and my professional career affected profoundly by their sharing of their journeys.

And thank you for using your creativity to impact patient care – and ultimately save lives and improve the health of mothers and babies

ESOL Programmes

Moving to a new place where you don't speak the language can be a daunting prospect. Liverpool Lighthouse not only provide accredited courses in ESOL, but also the chance to become part of a community, helping refugees, vulnerable migrants and asylum seekers feel more connected.

Our  ESOL courses  support  speakers of other languages who wish to improve their communication for everyday life and to gain the language qualifications they need to progress to further education,  employment or for the citizenship test.

Once part of the Liverpool Lighthouse community they can take part in other activities to build their skills and wellbeing, including physical activity, music and drama, access to the community shop and other community programmes.

"Having the opportunity to work at Liverpool Lighthouse has allowed me to develop skills I would never have been able to do otherwise. Seeing the work they do in the community and the number of people that benefit from us being here makes me feel proud to be a part of it"

Matt Bentley - Lighting Engineer

FAMILY CRAFT

Volunteering at Liverpool Lighthouse is a great way for retired people and others who have time available to help to connect with others and give back to their community. Your lifetime of skills will be valued and appreciated as a volunteer here with us. Our volunteers make all the work we do possible.

You may be able to help at our community drop-in, pantry or community meals, as a mentor for a struggling family or a friendly face to chat with someone struggling with loneliness and isolation. Maybe you don't need the stress of a job but want to keep your brain and body active and can help out on our maintenance, events or fundraising teams. Maybe you want to support the local community through volunteering at the community cinema coming soon. 

Whatever you can offer and whatever you would like to get out of volunteering, Liverpool Lighthouse would love to chat with you.
