How We Help

Children’s Heart Federation helps children with a heart defect and their families by:

Providing direct support

  • Giving information and advice (telephone helpline, factsheets, publications,  this website and making presentations at seminars and conferences);
  • Providing specialist medical equipment;
  • Giving out small grants to help families meet unexpected costs;
  • Organising trips that bring families together for mutual support and respite from the daily strains of life with a heart condition.

Campaigning for support and services

  • Working in partnership with other organisations to develop policy and campaign on issues that affect families of children with a heart condition.
  • Consulting with families through meetings and surveys, to understand their priorities for services;
  • Regular briefings on issues of interest to carers of a child with a heart problem;
