Derian House Children’s Hospice
Derian House provide care and respite for children and young adults with life-limiting or life-shortening conditions. Based in Chorley, Lancashire – Derian House provide their services for children and families covering the South of Cumbria, the entire of Lancashire and the North of Manchester. With an age range of 0-25 we currently provide respite and care to over 350 children in house and to over 100 children in the comfort of their own home. Not only do we provide care for children but we offer a full wrap around level of support to siblings, parents and grandparents.
When Derian House first opened its doors in 1993 there were just 5 children’s hospices, now in 2019 there are 55. There are around 5 times the amount of adult hospices than children’s hospices in the UK. For us to offer our services it will cost us just over £4m in 2019. Out of this we receive only 8% through any statutory funding, leaving us to find the rest ourselves. On average an adult hospice receives around 26% of their funding from statutory sources. Without the support we receive from people in the community we would simply not be able to operate.
