About Tŷ Hafan
Tŷ Hafan offers comfort, care and support for life-limited children and young people and is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the whole family. This comfort and support extends out of the hospice and reaches right into the heart of the family home, and is completely free of charge to the families in Wales who need it.
Tŷ Hafan was established in 1999 and since then has helped over 400 families, who live the dreadful reality that their children with life-limiting conditions may not reach the age of 19.
Children suffer from various conditions, such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Cystic Fibrosis and Celebral Palsy. Some children are diagnosed at birth; others receive no diagnosis or at some point the decision maybe made to stop treatment. As you can imagine, families often feel shocked, confused and isolated. But they are not alone, there is a helping hand and it's called Tŷ Hafan.
Tŷ Hafan is not part of the health service and in 2010-11 received just 13% statutory funding towards more than £3 million needed to provide care and support to life-limited families in Wales. To continue to offer its unique service to families, it relies on the generosity of the public, its corporate sponsors and volunteers.
