On 30th November Stuart visited Martin House Hospice, which provides family-led care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions. The Hospice cares for children and their close ones all over Yorkshire.
The hospice itself is a place where children, young people and their families can stay from time to time along their journey and find support, rest and practical help. It cares for all, whether it be children with short illnesses or children with longer term illnesses, in which case the children and their families can use the hospice for as long as they need.
Stuart said: "Having led the fundraising team for Martin House prior to my election as a Member of Parliament as well as working in a number of other children’s’ hospices, palliative care is something that is very close to my heart. I always like to find time to go back to visit Martin House to see the vital work that they continue to do on a daily basis to this most in need and their families. I firmly believe that we must ensure that people receive the most appropriate care personalised to their individual needs as they approach the end of their life. Hospices such as Martin House really are invaluable."
