Martin House provides family-led care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions. We support families from across West, North and East Yorkshire, both at our hospice and in the community. Our families are at the heart of everything we do and we value each member as an individual with their own needs.
The hospice itself is a place where children, young people and their families can come to stay from time to time along their journey and find support, rest and practical help. It is a place of love and understanding, a peaceful place but one that can also have a lively, friendly atmosphere full of fun and laughter, where children and their families can enjoy the best quality of life.
All of our families are offered the best possible support in bereavement, whether through one to one sessions or as part of our support groups. We have groups for siblings, parents and grandparents and even offer a service to families of children who have died from a life-limiting illness but did not use the hospice.
