Making a difference

"This wonderful home is all we hoped it would be and is a benchmark for others caring for profoundly disabled young people. We have been particularly impressed with the emphasis on the care of each resident as an individual, with the programme of activities and therapies both on-site and externally, with the high standards of care and training and quite simply with the love and security in which staff 'cocoon' all the residents - a true home in every sense of the word."

Welcome to the Martha Trust

The Martha Trust in Hereford was established in 1996, as a registered charity, to provide lifelong and respite care for young people with profound intellectual and physical disabilities.


All our young residents are completely dependent on others for their every need and they are given constant loving attention by our nursing staff and carers, allowing and encouraging them to develop to their full potential.

Our Goal

At both Martha House and Sophie House we aim to achieve a loving home environment. All nursing and care staff receive training on a regular basis, to improve the quality and variety of care available to our residents, and carers work on a one-to-one basis with them.
