Welcome to LATCH
LATCH is a charity that supports the children who are receiving treatment for cancer at the Children’s Hospital for Wales and their families.

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, the related ups and downs are often referred to by families as like being on a rollercoaster.
