Helen's Trust was established in 2001, and named after Helen Louise Lyon from Froggatt who sadly passed away with cancer, but due to a unique set of circumstances was able to achieve her wish of dying at home. She passionately believed that others should have that choice, and the charity was founded shortly after her funeral by members of her family and her doctor, Louise Jordan.
The charity has a history of supporting people with terminal illness, deemed to be within their final 6 months of life, enabling them to achieve their wish of remaining at home at the end of their illness. The charity helps up to 150 people every year, providing care, equipment and support and will consider requests for anything that will make the difference in enabling someone to stay in their own home.
Support is currently available in North Derbyshire and High Peak.
All genuine requests for help are considered which are about helping a person to stay at home when they are near the end of their life. Helen's Trust has a strong reputation for being responsive and flexible. Our uniqueness can be seen in the creative ways in which we support people, bringing much relief to beneficiaries, their families and carers.
Helen’s Trust is a registered charity, no. 1142370.
