Hannah House is a purpose built self-contained “home from home” styled facility providing planned or emergency short-break care for children with complex health needs.
Hannah House was built as a result of a charitable donation from a parent (Hannah’s Mum – Maureen Chapman). Leeds Health Authority agreed to fund the ongoing running costs.
The building itself is both innovative and award winning in design with a focal point being a circular multi-sensory room. The building also has a spa, six bedrooms, a quiet room, a sitting room, an open plan dining/activity area and an enclosed garden and patio area.
Hannah House caters for children up to 18 years old with complex health needs who meet the assessment criteria. Each child staying at Hannah House will have their own bedroom and we will endeavour to enable each child to enjoy the experience of a new environment, new activities and form new relationships.
Short-break care allows parents/carers to have a break from the stress of caring 24 hours a day and allows siblings and other family members to spend time together. The initial donation provided essential furnishings and equipment. However, in order to continually improve the service we would like to purchase more specialist play equipment. Fundraising is one way that we can achieve this aim and we are very grateful for any donations that we receive.
