During his visit the First Minister also cut the turf for the new hydrotherapy pool being built at Ty Hafan.
Tŷ Hafan offers comfort, care and support for life-limited children and young people. The care provided includes the management of physical symptoms and the provision of emotional, social, spiritual and practical support for the whole family, with the main aim of improving quality of life.
The First Minister said:
"The services provided here at Ty Hafan are invaluable not only to the children, but the whole family, providing help and support at what can be a very difficult time.
"The staff work tirelessly to create a comfortable environment for children and young people and I’d like to congratulate them on their hard work and dedication which has seen them support over 400 families since Ty Hafan was established in 1999.
"I’m sure that the addition of another hydrotherapy pool will be of huge benefit to the children and young people who visit Ty Hafan."
