Last month members of Regis Healthcare came together to take part in Cardiff’s 5km Bubble Rush run in aid of Ty Hafan. The amount raised in total by Regis Healthcare is still going up, however it’s now over £1,000! Well done again to everyone who took part in such an exciting day and we can’t wait to find out our combined sponsorship for such a good cause.
Yesterday the team attended the Children and Young People’s Mental Health forum in London. The forum was a good opportunity for us to meet with families, professionals and similar companies to discuss our service, and the good work our hospital does with the young people in our service. We were able to showcase our service whilst sharing ideas and increasing our knowledge through the lectures across the day.
We would like to thank the organisers at Open Forum Events and look forward to attending many more similar events in future.
1 DAY TO GO!
Tomorrow, members of our team are participating in Cardiff Bubble Rush run in aid of Ty Hafan charity!
Ty Hafan offer comfort, care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families. This takes place in the hospice, in the community and in their home so they can make the most of the time they have left together.
Check out the picture below of the girls trying on their outfits ready for the big run!
On the 16th June, over 25 members of the team will be taking part in a 5km bubble rush run across Cardiff, blasting through the bubbles of coloured foam all in support of Tŷ Hafan.
Ty Hafan offer comfort, care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families in the hospice, in the community and in their home so they can make the most of the time they have left together. They have looked after over 600 children since opening in 1999. Inside the building and within its beautiful gardens, you’ll often hear squeals of laughter, as children play together and enjoy time with their families and staff. Their hospice also offers families lots of private areas, so children, parents and siblings can relax and enjoy some peace and quiet together or on their own. Money raised will go towards providing a specialist team of professionals including nursing teams and therapists, as well as supporting families with accessing financial support they are entitled to as well as ensuring their voices are heard.
The team from Regis Healthcare were at Cardiff university yesterday speaking with those studying Mental Health Nursing. It was a good opportunity to discuss our service, being the only low secure CAMHS hospital within Wales. We enjoyed meeting with everyone and we look forward to continuing these discussions in future.
Thank you again to Cardiff University for the opportunity to meet with the students.
We’d like to take this time to once again thank everyone that participated and supported us in raising awareness and money for Mental Health Awareness Week at the end of May.
We had a fun filled afternoon at Ty Seren, our in-house Development Centre where our young people ran stalls consisting of cakes, friendship bracelets, hair braiding and green ribbons, all in aid of Mental Health Awareness week.
Our young people also had the opportunity to showcase the work they have been doing throughout the week, as well as putting on a fantastic musical performance that they have been working on during their timetabled music sessions recently.
Thank you to all those who donated and participated, as we help to break the stigma that surrounds Mental Health.
Total raised: £100
Well done everyone!
So much fun raising money for World Down Syndrome Day 2018 by wearing funky socks! Take a look at the photo to see everyone joining in.
Still so much left to do with the raffle to be drawn and cakes to eat! Thank you to all those taking part and all those who have helped arrange today’s activities.
Within the education department we are now offering our young people a Curriculum programme COPE/AOPE through ASDAN, the young people are able to gain a GCSE equivalent grade or UCAS points. It provides flexible and engaging programmes that involve short term targets covering problem solving, communication, working with others and much more within the modules he/she has chosen. This will encourage the young people to develop a wider range of core skills and keep them motivated.
The young people are enthusiastic with regards to COPE/AOPE as it provides a non-ridged framework which appeals to the young people because they can incorporate their own interests and pursuits into an active qualification.
Sessions can be either 1:1 or group based dependent on the module of choice. The young people are also able to increase the level of achievement as he/she progresses.
We are excited to see how this new qualification works – Alison, ASDAN Lead, Education Department

The staff and young people at Regis Healthcare took part in a large number of activities to fund raise for Children in Need. There was a cake sale, sponsored silence, sponsored fitness and the young people performed a concert they had been rehearsing during their music sessions. All the staff wore onesies and great fun was had by all. A total of £171 was raised for the charity.
