Objectives

Martlets is a local charity providing essential care to people affected by terminal illness in Brighton and Hove, and surrounding areas. Our expert teams provide the very best care and support, helping patients and their loved ones to live life to the full during the precious time they have together.

Activities

Most people receive care from us in their own homes. Others choose to spend their final days on our inpatient ward, or to join us as inpatients for respite care or symptom management. Outpatients also visit our hospice for pain relief, physiotherapy, counselling, welfare advice and social activities. Martlets’ care is free thanks to the support of local people, businesses, and trusts. An NHS grant covers a portion of our costs, but we rely on the community to fund most of our vital services. From terminal cancer and end-stage heart disease to neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Motor Neurone Disease, we’re here to help.
