Lagan's provide respite care for families

Respite care provides families with the opportunity to take a much needed break from caring for a loved one. Caring for a child with complex care needs is challenging – we believe that families often need time away to rest and recharge.

We have specific needs training and can support families with medication, trips out and overnight stays.

Defibrillators For Families Project

There are many families across the UK with children that rely on having a permanent, life saving defibrillator at home to ensure that they are safe from the risk of sudden cardiac arrest.

The Defibrillators for Families Project run by Lagan’s is a crucial scheme for families in need of this equipment, allowing them to loan the defibrillator whilst they raise the funds needed over a 6 month period.

Invaluable service and charity. They were there for us during one of the hardest times of our lives. They made the anxiety, stress and worry almost tolerable, we didn't feel that we were alone. We can't say THANK YOU enough.
April, my daughter, was born with pulmonary atresia and small right ventricle along with other health problems. I have struggled at home by myself for a year and was finding it hard to keep on top of simple housekeeping. Lagans foundation have gave my a lovely volunteer who keeps April entertained while I get on with jobs around the house. This has saved my sanity.
Lagan's came into our lives in 2013 and continue to help me with managing feeding and care as well as giving me precious time for other things. Not to mention reducing my sense of isolation by giving me something/someone to look forward to every week. Thank you Lagan's X
