Peer Support for better mental health and wellbeing

The Lighthouse is a mental health peer support charity, based in Kendal and serving the South Lakeland area of Cumbria, UK. Whether you have a diagnosed mental health condition, or are simply hoping to boost your emotional wellbeing, The Lighthouse provides services and activities to help.


 Come and join us for a cuppa and chat! We provide a comfortable and safe space facilitated by our lovely non-judgemental peer support volunteers, where you can come and chat, or just sit in the company of others who understand. 


Set up in response to the pandemic, we now also run a telephone befriending service: 'Beacon'. In 2022 we aim to develop this to be face to face befriending.


We also run a selection of various activities depending on what opportunities are available. Check our calendar and watch out for updates on our social media.
