After a pilot phase in 2018, Children and the Arts have given us funding for another 3 years to run the Start Hospice program working in partnership with our local hospice Tŷ Hafan.

Children and the Arts is a national charity that provides access for children and young people with complex medical needs and their families to engage with arts and culture. The Start Hospice program creates opportunities for children and young people with life-limiting illnesses and their families to access the museum, participate in creative activities outside of the hospice environment and make memories as a family.

Over the course of this year we will deliver 2 family days, one at National Museum Cardiff, and the other at St Fagans National Museum of History as well as outreach sessions at the hospice before and after each family day. Throughout the 6 week summer holiday, we will also run a program of events to support the siblings of the children with life-limiting illnesses. This will be our Super Sibling Summer Camp, culminating in a sleepover with a difference, where siblings get the chance to experience a night at the Royal Court of the Welsh Prince Llywelyn the Great which has been recreated at St Fagans National Museum of History.
