Who we are
Brian House provides specialist care and support for babies, children and young people who have a life-limiting condition. We are a local – not regional - hospice, which makes us quite unusual and means that every child we support lives right here in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.
Children can be referred to us from 0 – 16 years old, though we can provide care for young people up until their 25th birthday.
At any one time we are involved in the care of about 80 local youngsters, and their families can use our wide range of services completely free of charge.
It surprises some people to hear that we are a charity! We get very little money from the Department of Health and rely on the generosity of our local community to raise over £1million a year to keep our doors open.

Information for parents
Our facilities give children and young people the chance to enjoy new activities and experiences. Socialising with other children and adults can broaden their horizons, and we find that new friendships are made.
The Butterfly Suite at Brian House is a private and peaceful bedroom, lounge and adjoining garden – a space where families can take as much time as they need to say goodbye to their child who has died.
How to find us
Brian House has been specially designed and planned to create a home from home atmosphere. Our unit is equipped with everything needed to provide the very best care.
