Support for ages 16-26
The Lodge is a bright, modern, and accessible environment, promoting independence, where young people can have control of their own care.
The four-bed facility uniquely designed for our 16 to 25-year-olds features large bedrooms each with a city theme, a TV lounge area with sensory lighting, plus a private outdoor courtyard. They also have access to a fully-adapted kitchen with a rising cooker, sink and worktops.
There’s plenty to do, whether it’s enjoying a film in our “Derian at the Movies” cinema or gaming on consoles and computers, both at the Lodge and in the hospice Hub.
The Lodge is a safe place for our young people to chill out and meet new friends while also having their medical and health needs fully supported.

Young Adult Support Service
In conjunction with LifeNoW
We do what we can to make sure our young adults are empowered and independent as they can be before leaving Derian House.
We work with LifeNow to help young adults aged 21-28 who are transitioning from Derian into their local community.
Each young person’s needs, wishes and aspirations are taken on board with extra guidance and support if needed.
If you would like more information about the Youth Team or young adult support call 01257 233300.

Advice and support is available for parents and carers caring for the young adult too.
