Our Services A-Z

Hannah House


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 six bedrooms, a quiet room, a sitting room, an open plan dining/activity area and an enclosed garden and patio area. 

Hannah House offers short break care to children up to their 19th birthday who have complex health needs requiring a significant amount of nursing care and who either live within the Leeds Metropolitan Boundary or are registered with a Leeds GP. They must have a completed care assessment and meet the criteria of the Leeds Children’s Nursing Dependency Score

Our vision at Hannah House is: To provide a fun and relaxing short break in a safe and homely environment.

The purpose at Hannah House is: To provide a high quality nursing service that supports the individual child/young person and their family.
