who we are

who we are

Tŷ Hafan aims to meet all of the needs of life-limited children, young people and their families, at every step of their difficult journeys.

To do this, we provide a wide range of care and support at our hospice in the Vale of Glamorgan, in the homes of families and their communities.

Our Vision

A Wales where every child with a life-shortening condition lives a fulfilling life, supported with the compassion and specialist care they and their family need.

Our Mission

To offer a high standard of free care to children in Wales who may die in childhood in order to enrich their quality of life and support their families during life, at end-of-life and through bereavement.

vital to providing this free care and support are:

  • the nurses and therapists who care for children and young people around the clock to keep them pain free
  • members of our specialist team who provide emotional and practical support to ease worries and give families more precious time together
  • the advisers who tell families about the financial support they’re entitled to and how they can access other support services
  • the advocates who work on the behalf of families, making sure their voices and opinions are heard by health and social care services
  • the volunteers who support Tŷ Hafan’s services and raise awareness of them locally and nationally
  • the fundraisers who give their time and energy to raise the money that makes all of our work possible.


Together, we are a very special team that creates a lifetime of memories for life-limited children, young people and their families to cherish.

our hospice

Tŷ Hafan’s hospice is located in the village of Sully, in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Inside the building and within its beautiful gardens, you’ll often hear squeals of laughter, as children play together and enjoy time with their families and staff.

Our expertly designed hospice also offers families lots of private areas, so children, parents and siblings can relax and enjoy some peace and quiet together or on their own.
