Tŷ Hafan are featured charity at Owls clash

14th December 2018

Tŷ Hafan will be the featured charity when Swansea City host Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday (3pm).

Tŷ Hafan is a leading Welsh children’s charity providing palliative care to children and young people with life-limiting conditions and to their families.

At the Sully-based hospice, in the community and within the home, their specialist programmes provide comfort, care and support to those that need it most.

They offer short-break care and help families make the most of the time they have together – making precious memories and ensuring a short life is a full life.

And when a child is close to the end of their life, Tŷ Hafan becomes a family’s safe haven, by their side during their most difficult time – and for as long as they need.

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

Tŷ Hafan is about creating a lifetime of memories to cherish. It’s about joy, laughter and friendship. It’s about life.

They help address the emotional and practical challenges a family is faced with when caring for a life-limited child.

Be it their sibling support programme, bereavement services or dedicated family support workers, they are there to support the entire family through whatever each day may bring.

Tŷ Hafan takes care of around 250 life-limited children and their families from across Wales each year, and more families are turning to them for care and support than ever before.

It costs more than £4 million each year to run the hospice, providing round the clock specialist care 365 days a year and to deliver the broad community programmes. But only 4 per cent of their funding comes from the Government, so they simply couldn’t provide their lifeline services without the kindness and generosity of people like you.

Please help them to be there for our families by visiting www.tyhafan.org.

Tŷ Hafan will have representatives at the Liberty when the Swans take on the Owls this weekend.
