Our Mission and Vision

To support people with congenital heart disease to live confidently, stay well and enjoy life to its fullest.

To create a society where all those with CHD are empowered so that they can live more confident and independent lives.

Give to where it's most needed

Children who have been through repeated surgeries and long-stays in hospital can experience levels of anxiety and fears that are difficult to address.

When a child is seriously ill and in-hospital, there’s only one place you can be and that’s right by their side, 24/7.

The psychological impact of having a child with a long-term condition can be far reaching and the affects of the trauma may not even be evident.
