About Us

Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is the most common birth defect in the UK. Thousands of babies are born with a heart problem each year and hundreds of children develop a heart condition at some point after birth.

The Children’s Heart Federation (CHF)  is the leading UK children’s heart charity and works with individuals and organisations concerned with children and young people with health and educational needs due to acquired or congenital heart conditions.

CHF was registered with the Charity Commission in 1988 and is administered and managed by a board of trustees.

  • Provide practical support through our small grant scheme.
  • Advise policy makers and service providers on how the needs of children with heart conditions should be met.
  • Support research projects across the globe to help make the future a brighter place for children with heart conditions.
  • Campaign for improvements in health, social and educational provision for young CHD patients.
