Where a short life is a full life

We are Tŷ Hafan. We provide comfort, care and support to children with life-shortening conditions and their loved ones.

We are a lifeline to families who often live hugely stressful lives, struggle to get their voices heard and rarely enjoy quality time together.

 

We believe every child with a life-shortening illness

deserves a life full of happiness and meaningful moments.

Over 1,100

Over 50,000

Supporters

Our work is powered by over 50,000 supporters along with our care professionals, volunteers and employees.

Who we are

Tŷ Hafan is a leading and much-loved charity that provides life-changing care and support to children with life-shortening conditions and their families who live in Wales.

At our welcoming and vibrant hospice in Sully, and in communities and homes across the country, we do all we can to help families enjoy time together and create precious memories.

We’re also a safe and loving haven when a child is close to the end of their life, providing comfort and expert care in a family’s darkest hours and beyond.

Put simply, we are a vital lifeline to our families. Easing their worries. Giving them hope of a brighter future. And helping them enjoy life again.

about-us-wide

What we do

In our hospice, communities across Wales and family homes, we provide specialist services to help children and young people with life-shortening conditions have fun, grow in confidence and feel good, both physically and mentally.

We also assess the needs of parents, siblings and other family members, before offering personalised support to give them strength, make happy memories and improve their quality of life.

However, despite our best efforts, we know only a fraction of the families who need our help are getting it. So, we raise awareness of our life-changing services and push the government to do more to help all children with life-shortening conditions and their families in Wales.

On top of this, we pride ourselves on being a first-class charity in every aspect. This means we do our very best to deliver exceptional supporter and volunteer experiences. We go above and beyond to be an even better employer. And we work hard to create and maintain the best possible partnerships.

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

We’ll achieve our vision by providing free, specialist care and support to children and young people with life-shortening conditions and their families that meet their all-round needs.

We’ll provide our life-changing services in our welcoming and vibrant hospice, communities across Wales and in the homes of the families we support.

We’ll also push key decision makers to do more to ensure every child and young person with a life-shortening condition in Wales has a good quality of life.
