Supporting families in Newcastle

Crawford House supports families of sick children being treated at Royal Victoria Infirmary by giving them somewhere to stay just minutes from their seriously ill child’s hospital bedside.

Our ‘Homes from Home’ are more than just a place to stay. Our house staff and the warm communal areas make sure that there’s a friendly ear to listen when families need it.
