Hull Lighthouse’s aims are to offer friendship, advice and the opportunity to change, to women working in prostitution, and other vulnerable women, with an ultimate goal of seeing them leave this lifestyle and healed of their spiritual, emotional and physical hurts.
The charity supports around 100 vulnerable women each year. It is the only holistic outreach service in Hull specifically targeting street-based prostitution and supports 90% of the women on the streets.
The Allen Lane Foundation has awarded a grant of £6,000 towards the core costs of running Hull Lighthouse. The grant has been made in October 2016, and will enable the charity to work towards ongoing sustainability.
