The Plymouth Lighthouse Project

We provide supported accommodation for addicts seeking to maintain abstinence-based recovery using mutual aid fellowships. We provide support and housing management with skilled and experienced staff. Our residents attend meetings of local mutual aid fellowships and are responsible for working their own recovery programme. Our residents make a conscious decision to engage in the concept of a Mutual Aid Community within the project.

We run a ten bedroom house in Plymouth for men only. We have a strict rule about the need for abstinence but otherwise encourage a culture of self-responsibility. The house provides a safe environment for like-minded people to actively engage in maintaining and fostering a healthy community of mutual aid.
Our accommodation is of a very high standard because we believe our clients are worth it.
We are a not for profit Community Interest Company.

How we can help

PLP offers a staffed house from which residents can participate in 12 step recovery programs. We manage a community of up to 10 residents all participating in mutual aid recovery. We believe the best way to understand the recovery process is to be surrounded by likeminded individuals already embarked on the recovery journey. PLP schedules a morning check in meeting, starting at 09:30 Monday to Friday and weekly 1:1 sessions for all residents, to discuss any difficulties or blocks to progress.

Our commitment

At PLP client safety is our top priority. This is ensured by intensive house management and regular 1-1 sessions. Making sure that residents engage with the recovery process helps to ensure the house is a friendly, warming environment. We feel the best way to help those struggling to find balance and peace of mind is to manage the house with firmness and compassion. We believe everyone deserves a chance at recovery and believe everyone has the ability to recover. We believe that the recovery journey helps those live a life free from addiction and allows individuals to build the positive relationships with, family or friends and the wider community which they might not have had before. 

The House

The Plymouth Lighthouse Project occupies an end of terrace property on the corner of Durnford Street and Pound Street on the Stonehouse peninsula in Plymouth, close to the Royal William Yard and Devil’s Point with it beaches and views over the Sound.
