Reuben's Retreat

Reuben’s Retreat was founded on the 23rd August 2012 in memory of a very precious little boy, Reuben Michael Graham who sadly passed away in his Mummy’s loving arms on 21st August 2012, aged 23 months. Reuben’s Retreat’s primary goal is to create a sanctuary in Glossop, Derbyshire that will be a home-from-home for families coping with the serious illness of a child, providing respite breaks and the chance to build happy memories.

Lots going on this week, lots of evening work and the team and our vollies are covering Sunday too... all taking us steps closer to our vision.
We have plans within phases 4,5 and 6 to host a "changing place facility" allowing our families the dignity they deserve to change in comfortable surroundings.
It will give families the opportunity to add another destination to their limited access of such facilities.
