our funding

It costs over £5.2 million each year for Tŷ Hafan to provide our specialist one-to-one care and outreach services to life-limited children, young people and their families.

Because we’re not part of the health service, we receive less than 20% in statutory funding towards this figure.

This means Tŷ Hafan and our incredible supporters currently need to raise over £5.2 million every year for us to continue our life-changing work.

It’s a big ask. But together, we know we will and must do it.


How does tŷ hafan raise the money it needs each year?

Our income is generated in many different ways. These include:
  • Fundraising activities by individuals, schools, churches and community groups
  • Monthly regular donations from individuals
  • Our network of charity shops across south Wales
  • Tŷ Hafan-organised events
  • Our lottery, Crackerjackpot, which is the largest (over 40,000 members) hospice lottery in the UK
  • Businesses fundraising for us or providing services free of charge
  • Supporters leaving gifts in their wills to us
  • One-off donations from supporters given at events or through our website.


Does Tŷ Hafan receive any funding from the government?

Tŷ Hafan is independent from the NHS and has no guaranteed statutory funding.
