Brian Jackson House

BJH

Named after our founder, Brian Jackson House is located in a converted railway goods warehouse that was previously being used as an exam room overflow for Huddersfield University. It’s a massive 2500sq metres and located beside the railway interchange in the heart of the town centre. Despite the building’s history, it’s now a fully-functioning Children’s Centre with full disabled access.

We offer a broad range of services for the whole community at Brian Jackson House, from mediation for separating families to travel companions and lunch clubs for the over 50s. Click on the links below to find out more about the facilities and services provided at Brian Jackson House.
