Welcome to Tŷ Hafan Children’s Hospice

Through life, death and beyond.

When a child’s life will be short, no family should have to live it on their own.

No parent ever imagines that their child’s life will be short. Sadly, this is the reality facing thousands of families in Wales. We can’t stop this happening, but we can make sure that no one in Wales lives their child’s short life alone.


Having prepped his room, the team read stories to Max in the night, and then we were all able to say our last goodbyes to him.
