Philosophy of care
The philosophy of care is centred on the individual needs of the child and the family, with a team of highly professional individuals and a culture of excellence in all we do.
The aim of the Family Support Team is to provide both practical and emotional support and advice in a way that best suits families throughout their journey.
Derian at home
The team takes Derian’s expert knowledge, skills and support into the community, enabling a child to receive on-going expert care at home.
With more children than ever with life limiting conditions now reaching adulthood, it’s essential that our teenagers and young adults have facilities which reflect their requirements.
A wide range of bereavement support is offered for parents, siblings and grandparents. This continues indefinitely, for as long as it is required by the family.
Family support resources
We will endeavour to provide families with the maximum amount of information, both internal and external, to support them in caring for their child.
