The Light House

The Light House is commissioned by Derbyshire CCGs and Derby City Council. The health part of the service is currently being provided by NutureCare for an interim period.  

Firstly, we want to be clear that the Light House will not be closing. The priority is to make sure respite support continues to be available for Light House service users.  

The CCG and Derby City Council have been reviewing the way these services are offered, alongside other health colleagues, and key to this review is working with you, our services users, parents and carers, to work towards developing a new way of offering respite support once the current provider finishes their work with us. We’re looking at all options, including short and long-term solutions.  

Since November 2018 the CCG and Derby City Council have been meeting with parents and carers to work through the notice period to transition to an interim health provider. The next step is to co-design a suitable long term model that will work for the children and young people who currently use the service, those on the waiting list and importantly the children of the future, and their families and carers. In order to do that, we need to hear from people who use the service or who might be using it in the future. 

Parents and carers have helped us develop the questions we are asking in this consultation, which will allow us to better understand your views on what a good service should look like. 

If you have any questions or would like to talk to someone please contact our Engagement Manager, Claire Haynes, by calling 01332 868 677 or emailing:  

This consultation closes on Tuesday 3 December 2019 5pm. This page will be regularly updated with Frequently Asked Questions.
