Ty Hafan

what we do

Our vision is to ensure every life-limited child and young person in Wales lives a full family life.

what we do

For this to happen, it’s also vital that mums, dads, brothers and sisters receive the support they need during such a difficult time.

This involves us offering a wide range of free care and support at our hospice and in the community.

Specialist staff, including children’s nurses, family support workers and play workers, give care and comfort to families over weeks, months and years, helping them create precious memories to cherish forever.

We also offer short break care to children and young people at our hospice so families can take time out from their caring duties. During these visits, parents and other family members can stay at the hospice as well.

If the sad day comes when a child does die, we are still there for their family, for however long they need us. We never stop caring for the bereaved.

Today, we are caring for an increasing number of life-limited children and their families. This is why we need our amazing supporters to keep making a difference and new supporters to start supporting us so we can improve even more lives.
