Children's Heart Federation helps children with a heart defect and their families by:
- Giving information and advice (telephone helpline, factsheets, publications, 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.
We also campaign for support and services and give regular briefings on issues of interest to carers of a child with a heart problem.
