About Derian House

When we were children, it always seemed the best stories of childhood began, "Once upon a time" and ended, "they all lived happily ever after".

Sadly for the children of Derian House and their parents, the reality is somewhat different, and all too often, living happily ever after, is not to be.

For the parents of a child diagnosed as terminally ill, there can be no long term future, ......the planning of their child's education, the milestones in their child's life....... for who knows what tomorrow, next week, next year may bring. For them there is sufficient challenge in coping with their child's illness from one day to the next.

For them, their children's future is counted in smaller terms, sometimes in months or weeks, rather than years, in taking each day as it comes. For them, Derian House becomes an intrinsic part of that future.

Whilst their lives may be cut tragically short, we ensure that they lead as full and normal a life as possible by offering them the optimum support to cope with their illness, along with the best possible medical care , and as much fun and laughter as they can pack into every single day...
