Tŷ Hafan Children’s Hospice: reducing anxiety through play

It’s no work and always play with Sarah, a Palliative Care Play Specialist, funded by your donations. Sarah is from Tŷ Hafan Children’s Hospice in Wales and provides support for children with life-limiting conditions and their siblings.

Since the pandemic, Sarah has moved her sessions online which include puppet play, teddy bear doctor surgeries and painting. These simple activities help children reduce their anxiety, explore their emotions and provide a distraction to the difficulties they are facing.
