Welcome to The Lighthouse Foundation

The Lighthouse Foundation is a department of Church @ The Foundry, Widnes and is a supported living residential centre dedicated to those who are suffering the effects of substance misuse within our community.


Our centre runs a programme called “The Apprenticeship for Life”  and is tailored to the needs of the individual. we also use the very successful 12 step programme.

The 12 Steps have been embraced to effectively treat alcohol and drug abuse in a structured format. The Twelve Steps method is based on Christian biblical teachings and has been successfully adopted by our apprenticeship for life programme to effectively supplement traditional addiction treatment.

The programme is also designed to give support and direction to individuals, leading them from the point of addiction to a level of freedom and independence. This is achieved through education, guidance, support and mentoring, while also helping them towards maintaining balanced, healthy, drug free lifestyle.
