Some bed availability
At Granville Lodge, we look after young children, up to the age of 18, who have either severe physical or learning disabilities or a combination of both.
Our young people have complicated health problems that mean it’s difficult for them to be cared for in their own home. Many have long-term conditions, such as epilepsy or cerebral palsy, and some children need to be fed by tube, for example.
We provide long-term and short-term or respite care in a beautiful specially-adapted Victorian house. We’re on a quiet residential street, close to the centre of Hartlepool.

This is for young people who require high levels of skilled nursing care, day in day out.
The aim is to encourage our young people to feel as independent as possible, and to master as many everyday activities as they can. Where possible, we aim for them to have a mainstream education.
Sometimes known as “respite care”, short-break care is aimed at young people who live at home. When a young person with a disability spends some time with us, they enjoy new experiences and meet new people. Meanwhile, their families get an opportunity to take a deep breath and rest.
We look after young people with severe physical or learning disabilities who need a high level of nursing support. Our young people have complex long-term conditions such as epilepsy and cerebral palsy.
The staff at Granville are all fantastic. It is a lovely home. On occasions when I have visited, I have always been made to feel very welcome and am always offered refreshment and cakes!
I have known this young person for a number of years and am delighted with the progress he has made since he moved into Granville Lodge.
My granddaughter is thriving at Granville Lodge.
The support our child receives from Granville Lodge is absolutely fantastic. The care staff are lovely with our son and look after him very well.
Involving families and independence
There are plenty of opportunities to bring your own personal touches to day to day life here at Granville Lodge. We encourage our young people to be as independent as possible. We like it when families are actively involved in a loved one’s care, helping us to set the right goals for a patient each step of the way.
The manager is Gillian Fletcher. She works alongside a team of highly skilled specially trained staff members who carry out bespoke care.
