Martin House provides family-led hospice care free of charge for children and young people with life-limiting illnesses.

We offer support to the whole family, giving you the opportunity to spend quality time together as a family. We support families across West, North and East Yorkshire.

At our hospice, we have two houses:

  • Martin House - Our family house where younger children can stay with their parents and siblings.
  • Whitby Lodge - Our teenager and young adult house for those over 13 years of age.
We also have a community team that can support you in your own home.

Your child needs to be referred to us before their 19th birthday. We also take referrals for babies diagnosed in the antenatal stages. Both professionals and family can make a referral. Please click here to access our care referral form. 
For further information, or to discuss a referral, please call us on 01937 845045 or email
