Children's Heart Federation
The UK's Leading Children's Heart Charity

The Children’s Heart Federation is dedicated to helping children with congenital or acquired heart disease and their families in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.


We are a parent-led charity consisting of more than twenty organisations, many of which are registered charities whose main aim is the support of families of children with heart conditions.

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,  our 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
