Eckersley House

Supporting the families of sick children being treated at Leeds Children’s Hospital

Supporting families in Leeds

Eckersley House supports families of sick children being treated at Leeds Children’s Hospital 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.

Eckersley House was originally opened in 1984 at St James’s Hospital following a bequest of Robert Eckersley. Eckersley House moved to its current site with the kind and generous support of Dolores Halpern (nee Eckersley) in 1994.
