Lighthouse Futures Trust is an organisation with a mission of changing the lives of young adults. They design and deliver engaging employability programmes that include opportunities to work with a range of local employers via a supported internship.
Their curriculum focuses on two areas – Liveability and Employability – and is aimed at students aged 18+ with an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) who just need some extra support in order for them to fulfil their potential.
They work with those with mild to moderate learning disabilities, others are on the autistic spectrum or have social, emotional or mental health support needs.
They support students to develop skills so that they can forge their own pathways in work, accessing specialist support as and when they need it, but taking ownership of their future, from the start.
