The Liverpool Lighthouse

Based in a refurbished former Gaumont cinema in high-deprivation North Liverpool, they are a registered charity working with the local community to create thriving communities of people living more fulfilled lives.

As an Arts and Community centre, they use engagement with the arts to improve people's wellbeing, so they can go on to develop the skills they need to meet their aspirations. 


Their projects provide the local community and vulnerable groups with opportunities to develop skills, create and experience arts and culture and to connect with others, integrated with practical support for people in crisis or who need a helping hand.

Their programmes tackle the root causes of social disadvantage, creating long-term, transformational change in our community and our city.
