“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day but give a man a fishing rod and he can eat all year”. 

The majority of UK charities,  whose sole purpose is to help East Europeans, do so by acting as an immediate problem solver. A phone call, a letter, an email or a form completed may solve the immediate problem but it does not solve the long term problem which is that the client needs to know how to deal with problems themselves because this is all part of the INTEGRATION process, being confident and feeling secure enough to build a new life without the need to visit a charity for help every time a problem arises.


At LIGHTHOUSE we offer four types of service

  • Our website which is filled with helpful information which is regularly updated,

  • Our online forum which permits readers to seek answers from other readers,

  • Our direct email contact service where the client emails us with details of their problem and we email back with the appropriate advice. If these first three types of service cannot help then our last service is.

  • Direct communication by phone when on a Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursday mornings, between the hours of 9.30am and 1pm, we will call the client at a time chosen by the client.


This is a nationwide service designed to help you build your own future without the need for constant reliance on others.

Useful advice and help.

What we can do for you?

Moving to another country can be scary and daunting. At Lighthouse we are here to help make that transition of moving to the United Kingdom easier by providing useful advice and help.

• Need help talking to your local City Council about any subject?

• Need help talking to Social Services or the Police?

• Need help completing any claim forms or important letters?

• Do you have problems with your landlord or agent?

• Do you have problems finding better accommodation?

• Do you have problems finding the right school for your children? 


What we do.

How many times have you said, or heard it said, “I didn’t know, nobody told me”, well our small but very motivated team of Polish people, plus one Irishman, have first hand experience of the challenges faced by moving to Britain.
Our team has learnt, sometimes the hard way, that whilst there are many wrong paths available, there will always be one correct path leading to every solution. Our team decided that whilst we do not yet have all the answers, we know enough to advise and help in most circumstances and if you are asking why do we want to do this, the answer is quite simple, because we can.

How can you help?

Be A Volunteer, We need you.

Can you volunteer a few hours each week? All we ask is that you have a willingness to assist other people who may be in a difficult position through no fault of their own. Many problems can be solved by a friendly piece of advice or just an ear for a short while. read more
