About Us

Since Martin House opened in 1987 we have supported thousands of children, young people and their families. We currently work with more than 400 children and their families from the Yorkshire region and support a further 150 bereaved families.

Facilities include nine specialist children's bedrooms, eight family rooms for parents and siblings, three spacious sitting rooms, a playroom, multi-sensory room, library, art and music room. Martin House has a six acre landscaped garden including a range of equipment such as; wheelchair swings, roundabout and adventure trail. A six bedroom teenage unit opened in 2002 to meet the changing needs of the young people at Martin House over the age of 13. The new accommodation gives the young people who come to Martin House increased independence which they can enjoy with their peers.

Martin House relies almost entirely upon charitable donations to enable us to continue to provide the special care that the children and their families need and your support would be most welcome. Please remember Martin House in your Will as this will help us to continue our work in to the future. Thank You.
