The Lighthouse Centre

The Lighthouse Centre in Belfast is a wellness centre with a ‘Pay it Forward’ café in the Cave hill area of Belfast.  Over the year the Lighthouse Centre intend to develop their Timebank to serve the community acting as a hub for local residents to come together to share their skills to enable more support and services for the area.  People will also be able to earn time credits helping out in the café and by supporting the delivery of health and wellbeing workshops.  People will also be able to spend their time credits participating in training and workshops offered by the Centre.
