About TY Hafan

Map of Uk 5x5During her retirement, Suzanne Goodall felt driven to open the first children’s hospice in Wales and offer care to life-limited children and young people. After 11 years of fundraising and hard work, Tŷ Hafan opened in 1999 and immediately began to bring much-needed comfort and support to families in Wales. Since then the hard work has continued, as Ty Hafan have aimed to develop their services to meet all of the needs of the children, young people and families they support.
