Martin House Hospice for Children and Young People serves families from all over Yorkshire. Opened in 1987 with nine children’s bedrooms a second house known as Whitby Lodge was opened in 2002 to care for teenagers and young adults. Currently these facilities are used to support over 340 families, with a further 100 or so in receipt of bereavement support. Services are provided free of charge and with very little statutory funding available, Martin House is largely funded by voluntary donations in order to meet the annual running cost of £4.9million.
