Please help us provide emotional support for families through the hardest of times

Can you help us fund an emotional support service for children and families when they need it most? 

The Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales is an incredible place but there’s no denying that, day in and day out, many families go through experiences that are hard for most to imagine. Children undergo daunting procedures,parents live with worry and uncertainty, families miss each other desperately and people just like me or you can have their whole life changed in an instant.

Together, through a new emotional support service, we can reach out a hand to help these families through.


The Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital has a specialist child health psychology service that provides psychological and emotional support for a number of medical specialities. It includes psychology roles funded by supporters like you on both neonatal and paediatric critical care.  However, with hundreds of children and families being cared for at the hospital every day, this much valued service can’t be there to support everyone.

Through the Here for You Appeal, we plan to expand and improve access to emotional support services for children and families by funding counselling, art therapy and peer support, ensuring that people can get the right level of support at the point at which they need it.

If you can, please consider making a donation to our urgent appeal.




Your support could help childen like Lily after a life threatening aneurism changed her life completely. Read Lily’s story, and why her mum believes emotional support is so important here.

Your donation could fund: 

  • A peer support worker with experience of childhood cancer to talk through the many practical questions families have after a diagnosis. 

  • Art therapy sessions to help a child process a traumatic experience.

  • A counsellor to support a family as they come to terms with life changing news.
