Martin House is a charity that provides hospice care for children and young people across West, North and East Yorkshire. It provides family-led care to children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses, either at the hospice or in families' own homes.[1]

The hospice was founded by Rev Richard Seed and officially opened by The Duchess of Kent in 1987.[2]

Services include planned respite care, emergency care, symptom control, community care, end of life care and bereavement support. The charity also supoprts families whose child has died from a life-limited condition but did not access hospice care. Conditions treated include long term progressive disorders such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Batten's Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, and sometimes cancer. Care can take place at the hospice in Boston Spa, or in families' own homes.

The hospice's facilities include nine specialist children's bedrooms, eight family rooms for parents and siblings, six bedrooms in an adjoining unit for teenagers and young adults - Whitby Lodge - sitting rooms, playrooms, a multi-sensory room, Jacuzzi, library and a music room. The hospice's 6-acre (24,000 m2) landscaped gardens incorporate socially-inclusive outdoor play areas with wheelchair swings, a roundabout, water play area, and adventure trail.

It costs Martin House in excess of £5.5 million each year to provide its services across the region. The majority of this amount is raised through voluntary donations and fundraising, for example through Walker Morris' annual calendar competition.[3] Currently, one quarter of the income is from legacies.
