Martha Care bridges a critical gap in social support by providing Family Support Workers to give support and practical help to families with a seriously ill or injured child in hospital.
Martha Care's mission is to provide hospital based help and support for families when a child is admitted with a serious illness or injury. We do this by providing fully trained hospital workers who give emotional support by listening and sitting with distraught and worried parents and their sick children.
Martha Care workers also provide signposting to a portfolio of practical support such as accommodation facilites, transport and communication facilities, sources of addtional funding support etc. They will assist in completing and submitting complex application forms.
