How we are funded

Many people are surprised to hear that most children’s hospice care sits outside the NHS. Brian House gets less than £200,000 a year from the Department of Health, and no money at all from local CCGs or GPs.

It costs over £1 million each year to keep Brian House open, with all of our services provided FREE of charge for those who need them. As a result, the huge shortfall in funding must be plugged by donations. We rely heavily on the generosity of people in our community and beyond to help fund our much-needed service.

If you wish to make a donation or talk about how you can help please pop in and speak with our fundraising team, visit the website or call 01253 358881.

It’s a huge challenge – and a relentless one. We recognise that there are massive demands on all NHS services and we are unlikely to get a sudden ‘windfall’ from central Government. That’s why our fundraising never stops, why our volunteers and supporters are so important, and why sometimes we just can’t invest in new equipment, or do some decorating –the day-to-day bills must be paid first!

We will never stop needing this support, so if you are an individual, local organisation or businesses (on the Fylde or beyond) who would like to help us today, please click here to see how you can get involved.

We have some very important partnerships with other local organisations who help us with our running costs.
