Young men are facing a mental health crises. We aim to build a wooden yurt in newly purchased grounds offering support and advice.

We did it
On 13th February 2018 we successfully raised £20 with 1 supporters in 42 days

Lighthouse Community Projects is an existing charity that has already received help from Big Lottery to set up a Men in Sheds project. We want to extend our support to younger men who face mental health challenges by offering a dedicated service in partnership with other local agencies. We would provide a drop in space, fire pit, group work, chill out zone and one on one mentoring. The space to do this will cost £5,000 for the abandoned land and £5,000 for a wooden yurt. We’d love to employ a dedicated part time worker at £8,000 cost for salary per annum (3 day post).  It would be amazing to raise costs for the land, yurt and worker for the next three years, a total of £34,000.
