Elin Haf's other passion is to inspire children, especially those with chronic life-long and life-limiting conditions to have the confidence to take charge of their own circumstance.
Many children and young people with chronic illnesses experience low self-esteem and can suffer from depression. Elin encourages children to be more pro-active, by having the confidence to speak out when it comes to important decisions about their health needs and treatment. She has worked with the Gaucher AssociationERIC and Findacure to run workshops for young people.
