The Lodge

derian house staff

In 2010 we opened The Lodge, a four-bed unit especially for our 16 to 25-year-olds to support their transition into adult services. The cool design and relaxed atmosphere give our young people more freedom so they can spend their time as they choose. The Lodge gives our young adults more independence, privacy and a chance to make friends.
