About Tŷ Hafan

About us

Tŷ Hafan is one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities and offers care to life-limited children and support for their families, throughout Wales.

If you think this means we simply provide a place where children can come to die, you couldn’t be further from the truth.

We offer comfort, care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families in the hospice, in the community and in their home so they can make the most of the time they have left together.

We allow parents and carers to relax and recharge their batteries. And we make sure the needs of brothers and sisters are never forgotten.

What do we mean by life-limited?

We use the term life-limited to describe a child not expected to live beyond 18 years of age.

We have supported over 850 children since we opened in 1999.


Our vision

A Wales where all children who may die in childhood live a fulfilling family life.

Our mission

To offer a high standard of free care to children in Wales who may die in childhood in order to enrich their quality of life, and support to their families during life, at end of life and through bereavement.

Our values

Caring, Collaborative and Professional.


Every year Tŷ Hafan has to raise £4.5 million to provide its free services to families in Wales.
