Lantern House Trust is a charity, who have built a home for persons with high need disabilities. The house will be a home away from home with the parents still actively involved in their children's lives but knowing that they are somewhere safe, secure and stimulating as they grow older.
We reached our target, and completed a purpose built home in Inglewood in August 2015. With the generous donations from our supporters, including Taranaki Electricty Trust, Habitat for Humanity and volunteersHow you can help
The inspiration for Lantern House arose from a meeting for Parents about residential care, with speakers from disability service providers, held in February 2009. This meeting outlined the shortage of places for young adults in the foreseeable future. The parents decided to do something about the impending shortage of housing, so they decided to start a Trust with the aim of raising sufficient funds to build a home away from home for persons with high need disabilities.
