Where a short life is a full life
Tŷ Hafan, the hospice for children in Wales, is one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities that provides an essential service to families who often feel like they have nowhere else to turn, from diagnosis to bereavement and for as long as they are needed.
How your support helps Tŷ Hafan
As well as offering families end-of-life care and services such as family support, complementary therapy, music therapy and outreach play both within the hospice and in the family home, Tŷ Hafan’s work concentrates on the children’s ‘quality of life’ — making a short life a full life.
Where your money goes
Never did I think that my £1 would turn into £7,500 — I’m still in shock. These things don’t happen to us. It was only the other day we were talking about what we’d do if we won £10,000 and we were working out how we’d split it between our family!

We have been playing Crackerjackpot for years. It’s a fantastic way to support Tŷ Hafan and also a chance to win a great prize!

What we do
For over 20 years, Tŷ Hafan has been in the privileged position of offering care, support and comfort to over 800 life-limited children and young people, extending this support to their immediate and extended families for however long they need us.
A Wales where every child with a life-shortening condition lives a fulfilling life, supported with the compassion and specialist care they and their family need.
No family should have to face the unimaginable loss of their child alone. With children and families at the heart of all we do, we provide free care and support in our hospice and in the community, offering a lifeline throughout the child’s short life, at end of life, through bereavement and beyond.
