Launch of Daring to Dream®

At the final Leading Wales Awards & Legacy Dinner, we formally launched the new fund, Daring to Dream, which is part of our legacy.

Sophie Howe (Future Generations Commissioner for Wales and the fund’s first patron) together with Dr Nav Masani (Consultant Cardiologist from Cardiff & Vale University Health Board) spoke eloquently and with much compassion.

They outlined from their personal and professional perspectives, the huge importance of meeting the psychological needs of patients whilst they are going through physical illness and as well as the physical impact of the treatments, they are dealing with also.

Sophie Howe, Future Generations Commissioner for Wales, and the fund’s first patron said “Being in this room full of leaders and hearing their individual stories from across Wales fills me with inspiration and hope for the future generations.

It’s only fitting that the legacy of the awards is this wonderful charity that I am privileged to be first Patron for.

Daring to Dream is a cause that aims to provide services and facilities such as hairdressing, reflexology, mindfulness and singing groups for patients and more comfortable facilities for relatives to support the wider wellbeing of people who often have long stays in hospital. You cannot underestimate the importance of some of these softer things in keeping up moral and helping people to get better.”
