Benefits of becoming a volunteer

The time and energy you give as a volunteer really does help to provide vital care and support to children with life-shortening conditions and their families.

On top of this, you can significantly benefit from your volunteering role in all these different ways:

Feel proud about helping to make a short life a full life.

Develop new skills and enhance existing ones.

Meet new people and make new friends.

Improve your confidence, wellbeing and self-esteem.

Working at Ty Hafan has helped me a great deal with my anxiety to the extent that I no longer receive counselling. I work with a great bunch of people who accepted me for who I am. The staff who I have met are welcoming and so friendly. Volunteering at Ty Hafan is so peaceful and tranquil that I forget where I am, plus the feedback you get back from staff and visitors is overwhelming.
