LATCH supports children who are receiving treatment for cancer at the Children’s Hospital for Wales.

Having a child diagnosed with cancer or leukaemia comes as a devastating blow, faced with a period of months and sometimes years of gruelling treatment and an unknown future. 

Caring for a child during treatment is hard on all the family. Finances are often a worry as parents have to take time off work, family relationships can suffer as the emotional pressure takes its toll and everyday life is turned upside down.

LATCH makes life easier for children and their families so that they can give their all to their treatment without letting anything else get in their way.   The vital support they provide includes:

  • On-Site Family Accommodation
  • Social Work Service
  • Financial Support through Grants
  • Emotional Support for Parents
  • Emotional Support for Brothers and Sisters
  • Benefits Advice
  • Advocacy
  • Signposting
  • Family Support Workers

To do this LATCH needs to raise around £700,000 a year to cover the costs of supporting families.  With no paid fundraisers, LATCH is dependant entirely on the donations and fundraising activities of volunteers.

We are proud to be supporting LATCH through a variety of fundraising activities and events to help countless families across Wales when they are most in need.
