Tŷ Hafan is one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities and offers care to children and support for their families throughout Wales. We offer comfort, care and support to children and young people with life-limiting conditions, supporting them and their families at our hospice, in the community and in their homes. Tŷ Hafan provides care, comfort and support throughout the child’s life, helping our families to ensure a short life is a full life. We are also there for families in times of crisis, at end of life and beyond.

Our vision is to see a Wales where children who may die in childhood live a fulfilling family life.

Our mission is to offer a high standard of free care to children in Wales who may die in childhood in order to enrich their quality of life and support their families during life, at the end of life and through bereavement.

Our values are caring, collaborative and professional.

What will I be doing?

You will be working closely with our lead nurses to provide high quality leadership of the hospice-based care team. You will be responsible for taking charge of shifts; deploying resources to ensure the continuous delivery of safe and effective palliative care and support for children and young people, and their families; and making timely and effective clinical decisions.

This is an extremely rewarding role and includes direct work with our families, colleagues across care services including with community and hospital-based teams and with wider facilities team. The role also includes working with external stakeholders when taking charge of a span of duty and managing telephone calls from incoming enquiries for help and support.

You will have a values-focused approach in being caring, collaborative and professional.
