Providing care, being there... ADVERTISING FEATURE.

UNTIL Tye Hafan, there was nowhere for families who had been given the very worst news to turn.

It's the natural order of things that we all expect to outlive our children. So try to imagine being told that your son or daughter is not likely to live beyond the age of nineteen.

From short break care at the hospice to recharge batteries and spend family time together to on-going family support and someone to lean on, Tye Hafan is there for these families throughout every step of their unimaginable journey.

Tye Hafan is about a positive approach to life and death that creates and cherishes a lifetime of memories, however short that lifetime is. It's about making the very most of the time left and allowing the family to experience normal family life as much as possible.

Tye Hafan is about joy, laughter and friendship - the simple stuff of life really.

It currently costs more than pounds 3m every year to ensure the children and families get the support they need free of charge.

With no statutory government funding, rising costs and an increase in the numbers of families accessing Tye Hafan's support, your help is needed right now.
