We provide short breaks in a purpose built unit for families and their children (3-18 years of age) with complex health needs.

Hannah House is a purpose built self-contained 'home from home' style facility which provides planned or emergency short break care for children with complex health needs. It was built as a result of a charitable donation from a parent (Hannah’s Mum, Maureen Chapman) and the Leeds Health Authority agreed to fund the ongoing running costs. 

The building is both innovative and award winning in design with a circular multi-sensory room as the focal point. The building has six bedrooms, a quiet room, a sitting room, an open plan dining/activity area and an enclosed garden and patio area. 

Who's it for?

We offer short break care to children up to their 18th 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
