Welcome to Grace House

Preparing to open. Now accepting enquiries from families and professionals who may wish to use Grace House for short breaks.

Please make a donation or find out more about us.

Grace House will welcome families from across the North East. We will offer overnight specialist short breaks to children with complex physical disabilities and health needs aged 5-18 years.

We will have eight fully adapted accessible bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms; specialist seating, sleeping and bathing equipment as well as monitoring systems in all bedrooms to meet the needs of children with complex physical and health needs.

We would like to invite you to one of our Family Information Sessions to see if Grace House could be the place that your child would like to come for short breaks. 

Details of next sessions coming soon!

You will be able to look around, have some refreshments and meet some of the staff. Children are welcome, but will remain your responsibility during your visit. As we are still in the process of getting the building ready we do not have accessible changing facilities available.

To help us plan your visit, please telephone to let us know you wish to attend by calling Grace House (0191) 5252885 or email
