Daring to Dream®

Supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of patients in Wales

Daring to Dream’s mission is to support the emotional health and wellbeing of patients, aged 16 years and over, who are under the care of hospital clinics across Wales. It has a primary (but not exclusive) focus in supporting both ward-based and community-based patients within the geographical area covered by Cardiff & the Vale University Health Board.

This emotional demand of being chronically, seriously, or critically ill, is on top of the immense physical demands generated by the ill-health itself. For a patient to respond as well as possible on a physical level to their health challenges, it is essential that they also dig deep emotionally.

We aspire to help patients dare to dream that their life can still be full of colour and joy.
