With the huge impact of the cost-of-living crisis on all areas of our work, we need your help more than ever. You might have seen on the news that our energy bills were set to go from £100,000 to £600,000 per year. Now, set to be around £400,000 per year (for the next six months), we are in an even more financially challenging situation than we faced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Demand for our services is increasing, but we’re losing donations because many people simply can’t afford to give to us right now. Tŷ Hafan’s donations from individuals have dropped by 50% compared to last year. Plus, with energy prices dramatically increasing, the essential specialist equipment that we use in the hospice is becoming more and more expensive to run.

We worked hard to share how the cost-of-living crisis is affecting us in the media, including TV, radio and online coverage from BBC Wales, a live broadcast from the hospice with Good Morning Britain, The Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2 and we were even mentioned on Newsnight.
We’ve had lots more radio coverage, too, and we were also on Newyddion and BBC Cymru Fyw. Here’s a big thank you to Alex and Felix, Jayde and Savanah-Bleu and Bridget and Elain for supporting us in our media outreach.
