Referral Process

Who is it for?
Boys and girls aged 14-16 years old under Oranga Tamariki or Police care, may involve the youth justice system and/or concerns ranging from abuse and neglect through to mental health concerns or alcohol and drug issues. 


The Lighthouse provides two intensely supervised non-secure care facilities in Auckland, one home for boys and one home for girls. This is a short-term five-day alternative to police secure facilities or unplanned, inappropriate placements. During the young person’s stay, the emphasis is on engagement, settlement and successful longer-term placement.
