The Martin House Research Centre is a partnership between Martin House Children’s Hospice, the University of York (Department of Health Sciences and the Social Policy Research Unit) and the University of Leed's Academic Unit of Palliative Care.

It is a multi-disciplinary centre for research on the care and support of children and young people with life limiting conditions or medical complexity, their families and the workforce that care for them. The Centre is holistic in its scope, recognising that the care and support needs of children and families span clinical/medical, social, psychological, parenting/caring, spiritual, financial and practical domains.

The Centre’s research is organised under six themes:

  • Emotional health and well-being
  • Clinical care
  • Service planning, organisation and delivery
