Who We Are

At Derian House we help children and young people, whose lives are too short, to make happy memories in an environment of fun, respect and above all, high quality care.

We provide respite and end-of-life care

We provide respite and end-of-life care to more than 400 children and young people across the North West. We do this 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We never close to those who need us.

Our ethos

Our ethos is to make sure that every child and young person who comes to Derian is able to make the very most of the time they have.

Framework of Support

We also have regular visits from a music therapist and Shuna, our pet therapy dog. Our staff lead frequent trips to the zoo, seaside, local parks, and other days out following the interests of the children.

At Derian the whole family is offered a framework of support; with support for siblings, a grandparents bereavement group, and counselling sessions for families for as long as they need it.

Despite the nature of our work, Derian House is not a sad place; our corridors are full of joy and laughter as we do everything in our power to make sure our children and their families make precious memories together.
