Take a look inside the future hospice

Our expansion plans have been created in collaboration with staff and the families who use our hospice, ensuring their needs are at the centre of this transformation project.

Find out about the new features we're introducing, to enhance the experience of the children and families who come to Martin House.

The children's wing

The new woodland themed children's wing, will consist of nine spacious ensuite bedrooms. Each room will be equipped with piped oxygen and integrated hoists - two essential facilities which the current hospice lacks.

More families will be able to stay together at Martin House as we're building seven new parents' bedrooms and two new family rooms. There will also be a quiet parents' lounge, for some much needed relaxation time.

The teenage wing

An extended and refurbished space where teenagers can have more independence. We're creating more social space inside and out, with a new orangery and 'Love Island' style courtyard with firepit chillout area.

New-look bedrooms and ensuites have been designed by the young adults using Martin House today. There will also be an interactive den with sensory area, a gaming zone and recording studio. These spaces will give the teenagers the freedom they need to simply just be teenagers.

Family space

The extended hospice will have larger family areas and facilities, including an enchanted forest themed playroom, a vibrant art room and bigger music rooms.

Our chefs will serve home-cooked meals to families from our new kitchen hub, with a large open plan family lounge and dining room, and bi-fold doors leading to our extensive gardens.

The wellbeing centre

A new multi-sensory hydrotherapy pool will allow many families to swim together for the very first time, as well as helping to relieve pain and muscle spasms for the children in our care.

New consulting and therapy rooms within the wellbeing centre, will enable us to offer more holistic care to children and families. And a new state-of-the-art immersive sensory room, with a cinema wall, will offer a place to relax.

The education centre

The new education centre will help us stay at the forefront of paediatric palliative care, providing ongoing training to hospice staff and other health professionals. We believe passionately that
the more people we teach about good palliative care, the more children we can help.

A simulation training room for immersive education, along with adaptable education space will enable us to deliver high-quality training courses to ensure children in our region receive the best possible palliative care.

Amelia’s been too poorly to take on holiday for the last two years. Bringing the experience of being at the seaside to her, in the new immersive sensory room, will be a dream come true.
