The theme for this year’s national Children’s Hospice Week (May 23 – 29) is ‘putting families first’ to highlight how children’s hospices like Tŷ Hafan help families treasure their precious time together.

I have been marshalling at the Taff Trail Cycle Challenge as a sweeper with the help of others for eight years now I think, this will be the ninth or tenth – I can never remember.

day in the life of a complementary therapy practitioner

written by abi tong

I have been lucky enough to be part of the Tŷ Hafan family for the last three years. I initially started as a volunteer not long after graduating from my degree at the end of 2012, before stepping in to cover a maternity leave post. I then became a sessional worker, before having a temporary part-time contract which finally became a full time permanent contract last November.

little mix surprise for special sibling

written by Laura Mellens

Caring for the needs of siblings is a key part of what we do at Tŷ Hafan. One of our siblings, Neveah Mellens, was treated to a fantastic experience when the founder of Giovanni’s Restaurant’s and Cookery School donated two VIP tickets to the sold-out, Little Mix concert at the Motorpoint Arena plus a pre-show meal for four at his Park Place restaurant.
