Martlets is a charity that cares for people living through a terminal illness in and around Brighton and Hove. We’re much more than a hospice and we’re working to change perceptions of hospice care. Today, most of our patients receive care in their own home. Our hospice in Hove is a place where patients and their families can use our therapeutic services, drop-in clinics, visit our in-patient unit or just sit and have a coffee in our café. Our community teams care for people living and dying at home.  Families and loved ones are supported into bereavement. We run a 24/7 helpline for free, personal support, this a collaboration between Martlets and the Sussex Community Trust’s palliative care team.  Our care is only free thanks to the generosity of local people; every donation will help us change lives.
