Exciting Times Ahead
Most of you know when I set up The Lighthouse Centre my dream was to work for the charity, to be able to grow it so more people who need it can access our services. A finance plan, a business plan, a strategic plan, lots of help support and encouragement this dream is now a reality!!! We received National Lottery Community funding and Government funding to run a project working with cancer and long term condition patients affected by Covid-19, whether that be a new diagnosis, having treatment cancelled or postponed, having surgery cancelled or postponed, or having to shield. We are all Covid-19 safe, we wear the appropriate PPE, hand washing is instinctive, some of us have antibodies, most of all we want you to know you are safe in our care. We can visit you in your own home, or if you prefer you can come to our safe haven of an office, which is cleaned.
Thanks to this money we will be able to grow, you will be seeing much more of our presence online, you will see our website is being juggled, you will see flyers and postcards with what we can offer. You can access our services through the website, through all social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google) through good old fashioned telephones, through your specialist care team, any which way you choose as your preferred method. You can refer friends and family members too. We are also in discussions and planning for the future (when we are able) to offer safe support groups for those who have experienced grief and who feel they have nowhere to turn.
