Charity number


Helen's Trust is a small local charity based in Bakewell. We

provide support to anyone with terminal illness, anywhere in

North Derbyshire, enabling them to stay at home at the end

of their illness, if that is their choice. We fund and coordinate

care, equipment and anything that will make the difference.

We aim to help remove the barriers that may be preventing a person from staying at home by funding and providing care and equipment. Some examples of things we have provided in the past are:


  • Packages of care which meet individual needs
  • Equipment, such as a stairlift to enable someone to remain fully integrated in family life
  • Transport to and from hospital appointments to enable the person to stay at home
  • In many cases it is small things that make a big difference


Why it is so important to stay at home


  • Returning to your own home, even after just ashort time, can be one of the most comforting feelings



  • Relaxing in your own chair, drinking tea from your favourite cup or watching your pets play in the garden are simple pleasures we can all take for granted



  • At the most challenging of times these home comforts can make an even bigger difference to our beneficiaries and their families


Everyone has a different reason why their home is a special place for them. 

The support we provide is tailored to individual needs and we pride ourselves on our creative approach to helping people with a terminal illness and their families once they have been referred to us.

Supporting a person with a terminal illness who has chosen to remain at home is fundamental to the mission and values of Helen's Trust and is closely linked to the charity’s creation.
