there is no tŷ hafan without our nurses

Being a Tŷ Hafan nurse is a true privilege. No two days are ever the same - one moment I might find myself dressed up and having a sing a long and the next I am responding to a clinical emergency. This is why we like to think we bring the medicine with a little bit of magic!

My name is Hayley and I have been part of Tŷ Hafan’s nursing team for ten amazing years. Nursing is quite simply part of who I am and my time at Tŷ Hafan has been nothing short of incredible.

Over the last decade I have seen more and more children referred to Tŷ Hafan than ever before. Their medical needs have become ever more complex with enhancements in modern medicine seeing children live longer. As a result, the clinical care we provide at Tŷ Hafan is becoming specialist and combined with a growing demand, has required us to expand our nursing team. Today our team of nurses stands at 33 and costs over £1 million each year. We need your help.

A donation from you today can help deliver life-sustaining treatment to Tŷ Hafan children and provide their families with precious opportunities to cherish magical moments with their children.

At Tŷ Hafan I am not just a nurse; I am honoured to play a role in helping our families create memories which they can cherish for a lifetime. This truly is the magic of my role.

Tŷ Hafan nurses deliver support 24/7, 365 days a year. We are ready to respond to emergencies and, when the time comes, are pivotal in end-of-life care. At this most difficult time for our families, it is our duty to ensure the child is comfortable and the wishes of the family are met. We our by our families’ side during their darkest hours.

It costs us £1 million every year to fund our nurses and we can’t do this without our amazing supporters. I know that Tŷ Hafan is close to your heart, so please support us again this year so that nurses can continue to deliver the medicine and the magic to our families.

Thank you for caring



PS. When I tell people what job I do, they always make a face and say ‘I couldn’t do that’. I always have to explain that it’s not sad here, I love my job. I personally think it’s the best job anybody could have! I hope I have been able to share with you how your support makes a real difference to Tŷ Hafan children and their families. Thank you again.
