A very special place
to call home

A relaxed & caring environment


We all believe that anything can be achieved. We immerse our residents in a positive atmosphere where nothing is impossible - and you know what – amazing things happen. 

We feel passionately that a sense of humour and a flexible approach creates the best and friendliest environment for residents and their parents alike. There is always something going on here, from impromptu concerts to day trips and even multi-day excursions.

Every resident has his or her own bedroom, with accommodation for a maximum number of 14 residents at both sites, offering life long and much-needed respite care for those who need it most.

Rooms are as individual as our residents (as they should be), and allow for both a sense of sanctuary as well as a canvas for self-expression. Both homes have been built to be as light and airy as possible, with ample opportunity to spill out into our fantastic sensory gardens on all sides.

Facilities on hand are extensive and available at anytime to create the most engaging environment possible... there is never a dull moment.


Martha Trust is unique because we have no geographical boundary or age limit.

We fully understand how difficult it must be when a son or daughter is admitted for lifelong care. Both homes have a family room with en-suite facilities to enable parents to stay whilst their child settles in. Parents and relatives are welcome to visit at any time however it must be understood that the homes accommodate several people and that their visit should not impact on the care provided to others.

The homes are registered by the Care Quality Commission as Nursing Homes which provide permanent and respite care for both children and adults. The people living at Martha House and Sophie House have complex needs, and are totally dependent, requiring constant one-to-one attention and nursing care.


We have been particularly impressed with the emphasis on the care of each resident as an individual.
