Hope House in Shropshire and Tŷ Gobaith in North Wales provide specialist nursing care and support to children with conditions so serious they are not expected to reach adulthood. Our dedicated teams also support the whole family from diagnosis, throughout the lifetime of the child and beyond. Our high quality care and support includes stays at Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith, bereavement and counselling services, home care, support for brothers and sisters and a social work team. As a registered charity, Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith need to raise £6 million each year. That’s well over £100,000 every week to make sure they can carry on being there for all the children and families who need support in North and mid Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire.
