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.
